I HATE staining. However, I used this product last night for the first time, and was completely blown away. I had a rush order come from a customer needed a stained red oak piece in 2 days. That’s two days to plan, mill, cut, test fit, stain, assemble deliver, and install. I have been wanting to use monocots for a while, and it looked like the perfect solution for a short time frame. Needless to say, it is by far the EASIEST product to stain with. I would even say it is fool proof. Oh... and if you haven’t tried it because you think it’s expensive... you can’t afford not to use this product. I have never seen such a small amount of product cover the area that monocoat can. Also, what is your time worth?! Don’t hesitate; just try it.
This set made the application of rubio monocoat a breeze, and it kept my hands clean. It's not mandatory to apply it but it helps rub it in to all the grain and spreads it out in a very workable fashion. I highly recommend
great, makes it so easy to get in every nook and cranny without waste
Pads were very good at distributing the RMC on my floor project and did not soak up very much of it at all, meaning my investment in RMC went where I wanted it, not into the pad. Just one pad was enough to easily handle a 125 sf section of flooring. By the end, it was a bit dirty (even after having carefully cleaned the floor...) but still wasn't causing any issues with application. Highly recommend.
I used these with the exterior hybrid oil and they were awesome. Much less waste and the material went much farther. Super easy to swap on and off. Highly recommended over a brush.
