A lot of the problems with stains come down to the wood and how soft, open pore areas soak up lots and hard, closed pore area don't. I haven't figured out the best way to control that. Still learning.
You can use a pre-stain conditioner that will help even out the stain. It should be located with the stain and it really helps when using pine.
