If i am doing any stain work i always take leftover lacquer and thin it waaay down and i use those zep spray bottles and spray a coat on then i just wipe with a rag lacquer evaporates fast and it seals the grain enough that you dont get that blotchyness then stain it. deffinatly critical on all your end grain edges after you run everything through your router table if that makes sense. And i agree alder is a good even staining wood, maple gets the best results with me when i spray my stains oak just takes to much work to get anything worth while. Poplar is a good choice for painting atleast thats all i use it for. good luck
