I am posting the widget to one of my pine projects I stained. The key to not blotching pine is to use a pre-treating solution before staining. I don’t remember exactly what I used, but whatever it was I am sure it was something sitting on the shelf at the Home Depot where I bought the Minwax stain. The finish on the sideboard I built was 1 good coat, following the directions on the can of the pre-treater, and 1 coat of stain. I followed the stain with a couple coats of wipe-on poly from Minwax.
