As I have stated before, I am not very experienced with staining..especially larger pieces. The stand I am working on is maple plywd. I used a walnut color stain on it before I realized anything about sanding sealer and conditioners.
Should I attempt to sand down the stain and restain it or try to touch it up? Try sealer after sanding it again or what?
I can post a pic if I need to. When I stained it, it was without very good lighting...my first mistake..now I have much better lighting.
Thanks for any suggestions.

i see alot of short strokes and stain that dried up on ya.
start over for best results.use jasco striper to draw out what stain you can, then sand with 220.
then use a gel stain, and brush in to like basting a piece of chicken with bbq sause.wipe of with a terry cloth.
you may need to tone/fog on the same stain cut 20% with mineral spirits.best tool for this is a cup gun, i prefure gravity feed.
let dry and top coat
