— Flexner on Finishing -
Bad practice. Brushing a stain thick, as is shown in the Minwax television ad. and not wiping off the excess, leads to a poor bond. The way to test for good adhesion is to score the stain and finish Ion scrap) with a razor blade in a cross-hatch pattern with the cuts about '/t6" apart. Press masking tape over the cuts and lift it quickly. If the cut lines remain fairly clean, the bond is good. If the tiny squares lift with the tape, the bond is poor.
Looks easy-but it'salmost impossible. You can't keep brush strokes lined up so perfectly and you ca n't cont rol the release of the liquid stain so exactly over any significant length Plus, a thickly applied stain (no wiping off is show n) will usually crack and result in peeling if struck by a blunt object.
To be fair, Minwax does present lhe option of wipingon the stain in lhe instructions on its cans - but lhe accompany ing illustration still showsbrushing.
All this aside, the basic quesLion remains: Why brush whe n it's so much faster to w i pe? PW

Safety. Modern VOC laws have led some stain manufacturers to replace solvent with oil, sometimes linseed oil, which can spontaneously combust. To be safe, always drape oil-stain-soaked rags over a trash can or other object to dry out and harden before disposing them.
