Water

Water-based stains are suitable for most wood styles, but gains best results on hard, close grained woods (ex. maple & birch). Color remains clean & uniform. Can be combined with any finish.

Oil

Formulated to penetrate deeply into wood fibers. Provides excellent grain definition and rich color. Typically require longer drying time before sealers or topcoats are applied.

Used more on soft woods (ex. pine, maple or birch) to give a more even tone. A conditioner will pre-seal some of the wood pores so that stain will babsorbed more evenly. The finished color will be lighter than without conditioner so test a sample piece first.
