The application of stains and finishes protect wood and provide added color and depth. At Southern Lumber, we are pleased to offer a variety of high-quality stains and finishes to complement any woodworking project. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you select the best product for your needs to enhance the look of flooring, vanity cabinets, furniture, and more.

General’s Finish
The General’s Finish line contains water-based wood stains, glazes, and topcoats in addition to oil-based wood finishes. If you are a beginning do-it-yourselfer, we highly recommend these consumer-friendly products for any home improvement project. General’s Finish products contain more pigment than other finishes available, producing a more vibrant, deep, and visually-appealing result.

Dura Seal
Dura Seal products are designed to provide wood flooring with both durability and beauty that will last for years. The Dura Seal line contains a high concentration of solids, which offer improved sealing capabilities and enhanced color. Additionally, Dura Seal transparent finishes allow the natural beauty of any specialty wood to shine through while still providing the utmost protection and durability.

Man O’ War
Man O’ War produces durable, marine-grade wood finishes suited to both interior and exterior use. These products are excellent for both hardwood flooring and wood decking alike, protecting wood from weathering, UV fading, and moisture—including saltwater. Other applications for Man O’ War finishes include outdoor furniture, exterior doors, sills, siding, and boats.

Varthane wood stains are formulated with a soya-oil base and anti-settling properties to bring out the best in any wood product. These premium translucent wood stains are designed to enhance the natural grain of woods while providing long-lasting durability to protect your woodwork.
