I have run into this same problem when refinishing table tops and discovered that old wax build-up is the culprit . In order to solve the problem you need to make sure that ALL of the old wax and finish is sanded off to bare wood. You will know that you got it all when the stain is absorbed equally in these spots. Stain and poly will not bond to wax.
