Ever tried 1 or 2 coats of 1 lb.-cut clear shellac and super-light sanding before staining, instead of off-the-shelf wood conditioner, to reduce blotchiness and grain lines contrast? For pine, spruce and fir, the conditioning/sealer coat is an always must-do for good-looking finishing. Mold in wood is a separate issue I haven’t learned enough about.
