Sounds like you just want to stain maple without blotching. The best thing is to use a conditioner, read about them here.. Can be topcoated with most any finish. Glazing is more for accentuating the design (more color in corners, knots, etc) and or some color, even or uneven, over the entire surface, but isnt the best for grain enhancement. Dyes and stains are best for that. They can all be combined as well. Rather than following the FW article what look are you trying to achieve?

From reading the article it appears the intent is to achieve a smooth glossy finish then wipe the stain, then dry brush and leave the amount desired. This will probably require rubbing out the brushed shellac. Something like this is much easier to spray which will leave a better finish. Brushing the shellac over the stain my well move the dried stain around.
