Wondering if I can use gel stain for finishing stair treads.

Im using thick douglas fir reclaimed treads and am seeing plenty of inconsistency with my stain even with conditioner.

My question is if a minwax gel stain or gel stain in general is both durable enough for stairs and can be used with varathane floor finish

Ive decided to use varathane floor finish regardless, my question is whether gel stain will work and work with varathane

After plenty of thought i decided not to attempt to go through bona traffic as many may suggest (not part of what i am discussing here)
