What types of wood finishes are eco-friendly?

Natural oils and waxes are the most eco-friendly of wood finishes. Beeswax and linseed oil, as well as safflower oil and carnauba wax, are "green" finishes. Water-based varnishes and stains have good green ratings.

How do I apply a wood stain?

Apply a thin coat of wood conditioner first so the stain doesn t leave blotches on the wood. Then apply stain with a brush or a rag, whichever you prefer. Work both with the grain and against it when using a brush. Wipe off all excess stain going in the direction of the grain of the wood.

Can I mix stains for a customized color?

You can combine stains as long as both stains are made by the same manufacturer and both are either water-based or oil-based.
