Wood staining is a process that adds color and decoration to wood to make it more appealing. This is done through a wood-tone type stain to make the natural grain more interesting, or to add depth or tone to the piece. In general, stains can change a wood’s color, or its general appearance. It can also change or at least obscure a grain in a wood that isn’t terribly attractive to make the wood look nicer.
