What wood stain actually does what it says on the tin?

I am looking to stain my old (light wood) desk a dark brown colour but everything I have tried doesn’t seem to work. I have applied it and applied it over and over again. Can somebody tell me a good brand that will make my light wood a really dark brown color.

    Have you completely removed the old finish and sealer coat? Dark stain cannot penetrate sealed wood. Go to Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, whatever you have in your area and look for ways to remove old finish. Some wood will just not take stain. In that case, paint in the color of your choice is a good option. But you still need to prepare the surface.

    It is the surface not the stain. Either you are applying over something that has cleaning materials, polish etc, still on it or using a stain/varnish that requires the finish on your desk to be removed. In which case you need a stain/varnish mix designed to go over old varnish. There are lots, in this case Sadolin would be a good make.
