  1. Hey Ant,

    Be sure to test stain a piece before you do the big one. Keep the stain
    stirred as you are using it. Some people brush it on and immediately wipe
    the stain off. Other brush on, leave for a set amount of time, and wipe it
    off. Others rub it on/into the wood and leave it. Still others brush it on
    and leave it to soak in and dry, without ever wiping it off.

    Many different ways to do it, and all will yield different results.
