I stained a project and don't quite like it. The piece is Fir and the light/dark color variations are kind of zebra like. I'm thinking I should have used a sanding sealer first. At this point, how difficult would it be to remove the stain? Would it be worth it to strip them seal then stain again. Would the color variations still be evident with the sealer?

Had you used sanding sealer first it probably wouldn't have stained at all. It would have been good to use a wood conditioner so it would have stained more uniform. Anyway getting stain off isn't easy. If it was me I would use Kleen Strip paint and varnish remover and strip it. If that doesn't get enough of the stain out you might use some bleach on it.
