staining ikea butcherblock countertop - blotchy result

polannaOctober 24, 2012

HELP! We are staining our lagan beech countertops and it is a mess. We applied minwax wood conditioner, but due to unforseen circumstances, did not apply the stain until about 20 hours after the pre-stain. Two of our 5 pieces are blotchy. Does anyone know if I apply another coat of stain, will it even out? Or do I just sand down the stain, apply a conditioner, and start over with the stain? Or it dependes on the pieces of wood and they will always stain this way.
