The better the wood preparation, the better the final result. Minwax® Preparation products are the first step to ensure your wood surfaces show their most beautiful colors and smoothest finishes.
Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner penetrates the grain of the wood to promote uniform acceptance of oil-based wood stain.
Minwax® Water-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner penetrates the grain of the wood to promote uniform acceptance of water-based wood stains and helps control the effect of grain raising on both soft and hard woods.
Minwax® Stainable Wood Filler is a stainable and paintable latex formula specially formulated to accept all Minwax® penetrating stains, including Minwax® Wood Finish, Minwax® Gel Stain and Minwax® WaterBased Stain.
Minwax® Antique Furniture Refinisher is a low viscosity, amber colored blend of solvents and wood conditioners used to dissolve varnish, shellac, and/or lacquer on all types of wood surfaces without harming the wood.
For an extremely smooth finish that builds to partially fill the grain, apply a coat of Minwax Performance Series Fast-Dry Sanding Sealer between the stain and the varnish. Just 1 hour after application, it sands quickly and easily to a fine powder, delivering great results with minimal time and effort. This sanding sealer builds even faster than two coats of varnish and is more forgiving of applicaiton inconsistencies - even if it drips or sags, it quickly sands out.
Minwax Color-Changing Wood Filler is an easy to use solution for small defects in unfinished wood. The formula applies dries natural when it's ready to be sanded, allowing expert results for everyone!
