You could also strip it with a good stripper, if it's a fairly fresh job, that should get enough of it off to give you a good dry surface to lightly sand and start again with...make sure to allow at least 48 hours drying before redoing it, and some type of sealer is always a good idea...how dark does it need to be? A Gel stain like Bartleys will seal and stain,(and will act like a glazing coat), and can be recoated a few times or tinted, to increase the color and depth after thorough drying of each coat. Then follow with a varnish, wipe on Poly, Gel varnish, etc.....I'm assuming it's a fairly Satin sheen with the pores open.......and that you aren't set up for doing lacquer toning and topcoating.......
