Refinishing oak furniture

Posted by kjreif (My Page) on

I fell in love with a very large (11 feet long) piece at a second hand store and bought it, knowing I would be refinishing it. I'd like to do a darker stain on it and I'm looking for some advice on what to use. I was thinking a gel stain, but is there a better way? I also need to sand it first as it has several dings and scratches that i'd like to smooth out.

Thanks for any advice!

I LOVE gel stains. So easy to use, and the best part is they don't require a heavy sanding. I would recommend general finishes gel stains. They are the best.
