We’ll be using all water based products for this project. You can wash the brush with water and soap for easy clean up.
Minwax Water Based Wood Conditioner (not shown but recommended)
Minwax Water Based Wood Stain (I Used American Walnut)
Unfinished Wood Project
This tutorial is for a new pine wood project. I used a Chalkboard Produce Crate built from this plan.
Sand the project well with medium grit sandpaper.
And then sand with fine sandpaper.
It is very important to remove all sanding residue before applying any stain. I use a brush to remove the bulk of the sanding residue, and then wipe down with a damp cloth.
