Choose your color; here are my choices of stain and brush. I like a natural honey color.
All taped and first coat done!
Dry time was only a few hours, as I didn't need to apply too many coats. If you're using a darker color stain, your dry time may be longer. Spray paint your knobs for a more polished look.
Do not "glob on" the stain, thin coats work best. Create a test area to determine wether sanding is needed. This stain should soak in nicely without though.
