Just finished a new medicine cabinet out of hard maple. I used Minwax oil based red mahogany stain. It looks like hell. some of the wood took it, some didn't. Definitely the wrong color. My father suggested spraying it, that's how he does a lot of stain. I used a HVLP sprayer, looked awesome going on then after ten seconds or so, it looked, crackled, all beaded up, kind of like it had some sort of sealer on it. Terrible finish. I am looking for that color, nice and even. Any ideas on how to avoid this?
