Wood Conditioner

Wood conditioner application

Today’s post is a quick tip on ensuring you do not have the “blotchiness” when staining certain woods.

When using stains on softwoods, such as SPF lumber (meaning that it could be spruce, pine or fir), the color of the stain can appear uneven and splotchy. The stain will also will look different when applied to each of the species of SPF lumber.

You can even out the color across the different varieties of wood and reduce the uneven color by applying a pre-stain conditioner to your softwood projects before staining them. In this article, learn all about how to apply a Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner to give your softwood projects a clean, evenly-stained look.
