    You do not have to wipe off the stain if ragged on properly. A good sand, and a good pushing of the rag. Polish in the stain.

    At first I thought he was gonna dip his nasty screwed up hands in my mashed potatoes 不不不不不

    Jason, I need advise on a rookie mistake I made. I pretty much dipped my door on a dark wood finish/varnish. It turned out to be…black-like in color.丹領儭What can I do to diminish that?

    I absolutely had to like this video. Good video with good content but I really had to like this video so it didn’t have 666 likes anymore. Your video is officially no longer EVIL.

    1:01 hey guess what. I did just that now I need to know how to get rid of that smell and I also put polyurethane on it



  7. Lark Fitzgerald on April 14, 2023 at 8:39 am

    Hello and thank you for the great information. Dumb question, i just picked up a small vanity that have 6
    Very small holes on top that i put Bondo on to fill. I want to stain the top a dark walnut. Am i able to do that with out the Bondo showing through? Thank you.

    Tip 6: dont stain without a mask. This guy was probably high as kite filming this.



  9. M K on April 14, 2023 at 8:39 am

    Ok my problem is Im about to stain my 10 wide table thats 11 feet long. Ive been delaying it bc I dont want to mess it up
    Any advice?



  10. Daniel Tucker on April 14, 2023 at 8:41 am

    Great tips



  11. Curtis Rice on April 14, 2023 at 8:42 am

    I also use a pre stain wood conditioner. It also comes out perfect…especially on soft wood.



  12. Daniela Pinto on April 14, 2023 at 8:43 am

    How to solve the sticky stain floor?



  13. caine aati on April 14, 2023 at 8:45 am

    So, I didn’t wipe my stain and is kind of looks bubbly, smooth but looks below par. Do I have to start again for perfect finish??



  14. Paul Menard on April 14, 2023 at 8:46 am

    Thanks for this Jason! I was only searching for, can you use a tack cloth before staining? You didnt mention that on this video, everything you mentioned, Im already doing, EXCEPT for, Ive sanded this table Im refinishing with 120 grit, then I went to 220, then 320, then 400! Then between coats I was using 1000!!! And youre right on the $$, the stain worked, but it had a hard time soaking through! My thought was, when I run my hand over it I want it to be smooth as silk, but I thank you for the valuable lesson!



  15. MobileDecay on April 14, 2023 at 8:47 am

    Here’s one that I just did. Don’t stain things directly over your coffee. The oils may look like abstract art and a masterpiece but now you need to clean your cup and waste your tasty cup of hot coffee.



  16. Juan Garza on April 14, 2023 at 8:49 am

    My stain would always end up sticky. Now I know why. I never wiped it off. What kind of rag should I use to wipe it off nextime?



  17. Stephanie Williams on April 14, 2023 at 8:50 am

    Thank you these are great tips! Im new to staining and have made almost all of those mistakes



  18. Courtney Dickerson on April 14, 2023 at 8:51 am

    I did mistake #1 on my dining room table How do I fix it?



  19. Fin Yellow on April 14, 2023 at 8:51 am

    Darn it, I wasted my time sanding a table on the finest grit… I knew I shouldn’t have listened to my husband, mama boys suck at men projects >:[
    My gut told me no and I ignored it



  20. Abbie Encarnacion on April 14, 2023 at 8:51 am

    Hii do I use wood filler before or after I stain?



  21. Barry Rowland on April 14, 2023 at 8:51 am

    How do you clean the brush after you paint a stain on the wood?



  22. James-Deric Newkirk on April 14, 2023 at 8:53 am

    THank you Jason. This helps a lot



  23. Dubious Jesse on April 14, 2023 at 8:53 am

    Great tips. Thanks for sharing!



  24. PatrickCMayer on April 14, 2023 at 8:55 am

  26. Atopia on April 14, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Thank you.



  27. Anthony goes to Tennessee on April 14, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Number one thing to never do, put stain on wood



  28. Reed A. on April 14, 2023 at 8:57 am

    Staining aficionado. Also didn’t toy steal the chipmunks or something?



  29. Chris on April 14, 2023 at 8:57 am

    Thanks man. I was wondering why my Poplar table wasnt taking stain well, pretty sure it’s because I had sanded smooth as hell (600). Glad I watched you vid. I’ll hit it with 150 and try it again.



  30. S U Allen on April 14, 2023 at 8:57 am

    Hi Jason, I just watched your video. I am wanting to sand and stain my bookshelf. What sand paper should I start out with and then end with? It it already stained but I want it darker.



  31. Sussi Lindebjerg Malek on April 14, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Thx



  32. Krispy Kris on April 14, 2023 at 8:59 am

    Im staining a whole exterior wood siding . Siding its painted brown. Would I have to sand the whole house before I stain? Or can I apply stain on top



  33. UkeVincent on April 14, 2023 at 9:00 am

    Thanks for the tips!!!! They are what I just need for my school project! By the way, what is the mat you use on table when sanding the wood? Any hint where I could get it ?



  34. Jen M on April 14, 2023 at 9:01 am

    Thank you these are great tips!!! About to stain my wooden door tomorrow I am super excited it took me almost a week to get the paint off the door 丹潑儭 getting there!



  35. joseph myers on April 14, 2023 at 9:01 am

    You pointed ALL the staining problems i caused in the past. Thanks so much for these insights.



  36. D G on April 14, 2023 at 9:04 am

    Good tips, thanks. Most say to use 220 grit- is that too high? I want to use COFFEE as stain- non-toxic, then cover with shellac. French polish- thoughts? I’m a newbie. the 3 sq. foot piece of maple will serve as one side of a DIY shoe cabinet in our kitchen. It will be near our dogs food bowls so it must be as non-toxic as possible.



  37. TKD187 on April 14, 2023 at 9:10 am

    Thanks man, I’ve been standing my guitar for the past week lol I keep messing up and I’ll start over and one thing I didn’t think about was the sandpaper because I have a spot where I dug too deep so I figure I would polish it out with some 200 grit sandpaper but the only thing that happened was now in that one spot the stain will not take so I got a beautiful black stained guitar with one spot right below the sound hole that looks different. After the fourth time of redoing it I just said hell with it and sand in my neck here and there to make it look vintage cuz to be honest with you I’m not saying this guitar again I don’t know that I have much wood left to sand lol but I will know what I’m doing next time



  38. Dawn Yarrington on April 14, 2023 at 9:16 am

    I did not know how to sand prior to staining….I sanded my oak table top nice ad smooth with 400 grit!!! My stain is pooling in spots on the table….help!!! What do I do now!?!?!?



  39. Hershey on April 14, 2023 at 9:16 am

    Hi, am getting red cedar wood fence panels in my back yard, do you think it needs to be sanded, before I apply the oil. I mean it is required for brand new installation as there is no wear or outdoor exposure yet. Any advice appreciated.



  40. nystagmus on April 14, 2023 at 9:18 am

    Quickly, i white washed a 300 sq ft room

  41. St. Louis Critic on April 14, 2023 at 9:18 am

    Was that nubie speech ? Yes !! . My quest has begun .



  42. Mr.Randiculous on April 14, 2023 at 9:19 am

    Doesnt using and orbital sander leave circular sand marks on the wood? I was always taught to sand in the direction wood grain. Anyone?



  43. tedd lemmon on April 14, 2023 at 9:20 am

    Thanks for your tips. Very helpful.



  44. razzy marcus on April 14, 2023 at 9:22 am

    I did this and left the stain on rip



  45. Norma Roberts on April 14, 2023 at 9:24 am

    I found a couple of light weird spots after I applied the stain how can I fix this , can’t find the answer. This was a raw pine door and I did use a Preston on it first. Please help



  46. albert urzen on April 14, 2023 at 9:27 am

  47. Elaine Terris on April 14, 2023 at 9:29 am

    Hi I striped my kitchen chairs. I then stained the seats with water based stain . I brushed the stain on , then wiped off. I keep getting what looks like water spots. I keep wiping it off and it comes back . Hepl

    This guy sounds like ryan reynolds



  49. K LE on April 14, 2023 at 9:30 am

    I have some leftover stain with a little linseed oil mixed into it. For the moment, I just kept the leftover in a plastic container with a lid on top (the contain I used to mix and apply with). Is this ok? Not sure what other container to keep this leftover in, as I don’t want to pour it back into my original stain can without contaminating it. And I don’t have any extra tin can to use.



  50. Sue Slater on April 14, 2023 at 9:31 am

    Great tips!!!
