Here it is after one coat of stain...


















I rerally like it... except for in some parts, there is a big diff between the darkest stain and the lightest... here's a pic showing the contrast...



For example, the top of his chest and feet are really dark, whereas some spots around his knees and upper arms are really light. It's only had onecoat so far.

Is there any way to help this? Should I sand the darker areas? Just add second and third coats to the lighter areas? Just add more coats to everything and it will lessen? Just live with it?

I'm use to palm wood... which pretty much stains evenly. I do really like it... and the differences make it look kind of aged.. I'm just wondering if I can help it a little... any thoughts?
