There is an inherent blotch problem with some woods. Pine is one of ‘em. I use a shellac seal coat, but since the Min Wax stuff is on it, you’ll have to work thru by staying with the Cabot’s instructions. If you don’t get past the blotch, you might want to use a dye such as Trans Tint in the actual finish as a “toner”.
What will your final finish be? Are you going for a high gloss finish?
Before ya get too far into the project, you might want to step back and work on a test piece
