I’m guessing either you didn’t actually remove the stain to begin with (oak is an open pored wood which makes this difficult) or you are hitting the glue and it’s not absorbing. If I was doing this I would try more for a glaze versus a penetrating type stain. Use a wiping or gel stain over the top. It works well for darkening existing finishes and sits on top of the existing finish. If you need to lighten it, you’ll have some issues.
