|It's a can of stain!|
In this case I used red oak and applied the Java Gel Stain. Here's the pictures one coat at a time just to demonstrate how it finishes.

When all is said and done, if you want to darken wood; the General Finishes Java Gel Stain is a solid option. It's easy to work with, effective, and not too expensive. I recommend it to anyone looking to achieve this color (and General Finishes has more or less the whole rainbow so if you're looking for a different shade, they probably have you covered.
