We started off with 64mm thick piece of our Hoop Pine and used a variety of applications so you can see the results.
Feast & Watson – Cedar Stain
The benefits of using a prooftint to add colour to your wood pieces is that the stain allows the full depth and clarify of the grain to show through. You can see how the cedar adds a lovely tone that looks great. Simply give your piece a sand and remove any sanding dust before applying the coating. You can apply a second coat if necessary.
Feast & Watson – Golden Teak
We’ve used another prooftint stain on our piece of Designer Hardwood, this one being Feast & Watson Golden Teak Interior Stain. It’s fast drying capabilities and elegantly enhances the grain and the golden tones complement the beauty of the wood.
Wattyl – Stain & Varnish – New Baltic Pine
The convenience of Wattyl’s 2 in 1 Stain & varnish is a great time saver. The final look after applying New Baltic Pine to our wood gives a rich natural colour and an even tone. This can be used for most indoor furniture and woodwork.
Feast & Watson – Grey Mountain Ash
This semi transparent stain allows the attraction of the wood to show through. The tones of the grey mountain ash stain suits with most home styling and adds a modern feel.
White Knight – Gloss White Enamel Paint
We also tested the paintability of Designer Hardwood with a simple Gloss White paint from White Knight. Use this just like you would normally by preparing your piece with a light sand and removing any sanding dust.
