Minwax oil stains.Many colors to choose from.

The one I used was called Early American and they came out great. I used on floors, doors, and woodwork trim.

We used Minwax oil based stain (cherry) on our new red oak floors and it looks great.

Interesting, thanks. I thought it would be recommended to stay away from Minwax. I was expecting to hear Mohawk, Cabot, Duraseal, etc.

Actually, the finish applied over the stain is more important than the stain.

All stains fade with UV exposure---look at floors where an area rug has set and then been moved.

Yes, that certainly makes sense. I'll be using Bona sealer and satin topcoat.

Bona Traffic is *the* top coat of the gods. I found out about it at a local wood floor finishing shop. They had half their front entrance done with Traffic and the rest done with all other brands. The traffic side was pristine.
