Ok so new game plan.

So I saw a video on the wood whispearer about staining and preventing blotching.

Sooooo

1:1 ratio of unwaxed shellac (zinsser bulls eye seal coat), to denatured alcohol.
Let that dry
Apply general finishes brown mahogany gel stain (cover the center of the plate board maybe with a full coat of shellac to prevent gel pentration, also tape off circle)
Use a few spray coats of clear satin lacquer
Should be good, atleast better than what we bought before
