Oh and they are easy to fix. Just rub more on if you need it.

Trust me on this one folks. It will take quite a few less coats of stain to get the job done if you condition the wood first. The conditioner allows the stain to soak in more evenly. Be sure to apply the first coat after the the conditioner dries in the next two hours.
The most common mistake folks make staining is not waiting long enough in between coats for the wood to get "thirsty" again. Yes, you can steelwool or sand it dry between coats but IME that removes stain that would have eventually soaked in if you just waited. Here because of outrageously high humidity it often takes 1 to 2 days for stain to dry enough between coats. That means a stock can easily take over a week. You can simply wait for it to be dry enough or do three times as many coats and sandings to get the exact same result.
