  1. Consistently beautiful, penetrating stain 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2015

    I'm not a professional woodworker, but I've used Jel'd Stain for over 15 years on the woodwork of my 1916 home that I've been refinishing. I blend blend 1 part walnut to 4 parts danish walnut and get the deepest, most beautiful stain. There isn't a dealer within 100 miles of me, so I have to order it at great expense, but it's worth it.

  2. Worked as promised 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2013

    I've used a lot of stains, this ranks up there, maybe the best. No drips , no hard rags,(used the same applicator rag next day), went on evenly, dried uniformly...I like it! Plus excellent service too , just like I like.

  3. Easy to use 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2013

    We used the Fruitwood back in 1999 to refinish our hardwood floors to match the original oak woodwork in our 1900 home. Could no longer find it in stores so ordered on line as we are renovating our bathroom and need to touch up the floors throughout the house. So much easier to use than liquid and love the color!

  4. Stain is easy to apply 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2013

    I like this Jel Stain. Other stains aren't dark enough with a single coat and are messy to apply. This is provides a rich color with one coat. Just wipe it on and wipe it off.

  5. Easy application of stain 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2013

    Very easy to use. It gives great results. I was very happy with the old product, but this is much easier to use.

  6. Speeds staining and provides great sealing 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2012

    I'm a cabinet and furniture maker that does a lot of gloss black finishing. I want a nice smooth finish but I also want the wood character to show through the color so I don't want to apply multiple coats of paint that would hide the grain. I use the Black Jel'd Kote for this work. This product is very good for my needs. Goes on easily, evenly and quickly. It's great for large pieces because it doesn't dry quickly like liquid stains. Seals the wood which reduces the amount of paint needed to get a good finish and minimizes between-coat sanding. I only have 2 criticisms: one draw back is the fact that it is somewhat translucent so you can't go directly from stain to clear coat. You have to apply a lacquer or enamel to get 100% opacity. The other is a relatively long cure time prior to color coating. If this product was opaque it would be perfect.

  7. love this product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2012

    i've used this product for years and just love it - will continue to use it as long i can find it. it's unfortunate that it is not available in my area - would probably try other colors.

  8. Awesome Stuff 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2012

    I have used this stuff several times on jobs that do not require a finish for the God's. It is really easy to use and it gives a great stain in return!

  9. Easy to use 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2012

    The product was easy to use and the fruitwood was a beautiful color. Love the product,but I thought it was very expensive for a 12 oz can. I thought I orderd a quart size, I clicked on the wrong size, you do not use much so the 12 oz was fine. You do ripe off people in the UPS charge, which was as much as the product. Great product but I feel way over priced.

  10. Awesome product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2012

    Have been using the products for about two weeks.. I've used 4 quarts and 2
    Pints. Love love love the way it looks and how easy it is to use. I've been putting it over cedar strip walls through out the house.. Using as a whitewash.. My biggest problem is not eating it as it looks like stay puff marshmallow !!!!!!
