Thanks for the suggestion.  I'm not sure that I am talented enough to do a good job spraying though.  My skills are pretty limited at this point but I am learning a lot from all of you!  I wish there was a local place that I could get some hands on help and experience so I'm not doing so much trial and error on my balcony!

Spraying with a rattle can is dead simple. Slow, even, overlapping strokes. Keep the coats light. Watch some youtubes to get an idea of the technique.

Van you share exactly which product you are using? Maybe a photo of the can?

The Minwax oil-based stains I have used always build color with multiple coats. Gel stains lay on a LOT of color. The Polyshades combined stain & finish is a beast I haven't tried to tame. Perhaps you are using something I haven't heard of yet?

Do you prefer varathane or minwax?

They both applied the same to me. I just picked based on the color I was looking for.
