I get the feeling you are dead set on using stain which is the worst way to go with pine but I would recommend you reconsider and use an aniline dye, you can mail order it. I have not used dye on pine but I have used it on poplar and maple with no blotching by spritzing it on with a hand sprayer. Very, very, easy. You can also use it to tone the poly to even out any color variations you might end up with (or have already).
