Remember when staining..thinner coats are always better..if something needs to be darker two coats with adequate dry time in between is always the prefferred method. If something needs to be really dark...especially a hard wood, a combination of staining techniques is usually the best choice utilizing dye stains and pigmented stains together to acheive a desired affect...It's always easier to go progressively darker than to lighten an error...and if you have wooden parts that have a "seam" or very different grain patterns right next to each other..glazing and toning come in to play as well...
