If you need to even out the stain you can do this with stain of you choice I use aniline dye(water soluble) then apply shellac. If you want I can Pm you with instructions on applying shellac with a rag and using linseed oil a lubricant to rag from sticking while wipping on the shellac with a soft lint free rag.

    I f you use linseed oil ,do not wad up the rags as they will flame, I had a painting teacher said she demonstraited on a stage once and had no where to throe the arag so she put it in her purse and it satred to smoke later . L refinished a piece of furniture in hot summertime and used linseed oil and put my rags on a old cookie sheet and put in trash barrel and a hour lated it was on fire. MY son came home and used garden hose to put it out.
