These little guys were my very first project bought for resale and my first experience with GF Java Gel. Being a newbie to the idea of reselling my projects I was quite discouraged when I tried to stain the top of then that had been sanded to bare wood. The stain did very little. I remembered about this product I had been reading all about, Java Gel. I took a ride to my retailer, 4 crazy kiddos in tow and bought my first pint. The results were simply amazing!
