Hi, I am using interstain 573 on mahogany plywood for a bar top. It does not say how much the pint will cover. I would hate to get half way and find out I need more. Just wondering if I can get the sq ft coverage from a pint?   Any tip on applying the stain also appreciated! Thanks.

Also just noticed that the solvent I have is 2333n will that work okay? I also have some Epifanes brush thinner if that would be better?

BARE WOOD Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Sand smooth. Sanding with too fine a sanding paper will not allow
Interstain* to penetrate into the wood. Ensure bare wood is clean and dry. If bleaching is required, be sure to neutralize
the surface prior to application of any paint product.
Method Brush the reduced Interstain* on bare wood along the grain. Wipe across the grain to remove excess material. Continue
wiping until the grain of the wood is not streaky or smudgy looking. The wiping cloth can be any clean piece of material
such as old cotton cloth, burlap, cheesecloth, etc. 3 or more coats of varnish should be applied over Interstain* following
directions on the varnish label. Allow to dry for at least 4 hours, then lightly sand to remove fuzz condition caused by
the grain swelling.
Hints Thinner Bare Wood - Brushing Liquid 333.
Thinning Interstain* is a thick paste before using. It must be mixed with Brushing Liquid 333 to the consistency of thick
house paint.
Other Use a cloth moistened with Brushing Liquid 333 to even out any streaking.
Some Important Points If Interstain* is not thoroughly dry before overcoating with varnish, the filler will "lift" from the grain and the stain will be
apparent on the varnish brush. Product temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 29°C/85°F. Ambient
temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F
and maximum 29°C/85°F.
Compatibility/Substrates Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. Do not overcoat directly with unthinned epoxy resin.
this should answer your questions

Since the tech is too lazy to do anything more than copy and paste....

1. 2333N is a strong solvent.  It's for use with 2 part urethanes and epoxies.  You definitely want to use 333 for Interstain.  Epiphanes 1 Part Brush Thinner is probably fine as well.

2. Coverage will be 20-30 square feet, depending on coarseness of the wood.
