Answer: 
You need to use a good wood filler before staining. Be sure the filler can be stained. Or try Minwax scratch remover.

1 qt. Wood Finish Dark Walnut Oil-Based Interior Stain is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I'm in the process of refinishing a farmhouse style table, my first DIY project. I used another brand of stain and the application and color (black cherry) was terrible. Re-sanded and changed to this Minwax Dark Walnut, and absolutely beautiful. I completely ditched any directions on the can and somewhere back in time only recall stain being hand applied with old cotton tshirt. This is how I applied, sparingly and rubbing in direction of grain as I went along. I've applied 3 coats and the color is stunning. no streaking. I have had no problem with drying. Guessing those that have are applying with a brush and using too much and didn't wipe down with cloth after applying with brush. Also, if you have already stained and your project is uneven or streaked, try sanding with the lightest fine sand paper. The color will reveal itself and you can even it out -- you'll be surprised! My best advice is take your time, use an old clean pure cotton t shirt. Apply sparingly and evenly in direction of grain. And take your time and let the wood talk to you and reveal itself...don't smother it. Wait a couple days in between coats. You will notice the wood change as time passes and it sets in. I'll try to post a pic when I've completed my project.

You must read the directions, after 5-15 minutes you must wipe down the wood with a cloth. I loved the results and used a paint brush application method.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for oil base This is a great stain when you do not need gel. Minwax has always been top of the line, but be careful when trying to stain pine. For pine, either use a pre-stain coat of varnish thinned 3:1with mineral spirits, or go to the gel stains. Otherwise the stain will blotch as the stain is absorbed unevenly by the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best staining products ever Have used Minwax products all my woodworking life. Never a problem if used properly and on appropriate materials.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Multiply drying time by 10! The color is great but 72 Hours after a thin coat was applied it is still tacky to the touch!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor results I purchased the maple sealer/stain from the North Spokane Store. This was to restore a large cabinet door with plywood veneer. I removed all of the previous coatings, sanded as directed with 220 grit, then applied the sealer/stain. Very poor results. The product did not uniformly cover the door, left "good/bad" areas and required that I once again sand and reapply the product. After 3 applications the "good/bad" areas still remained. I went over to HD, purchased a can of spar varnish and oil based stain, applied and it covered uniformly in one coat! Needless to say, Miniwax has a very poor product in this area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Main Bathroom Cabinets I had used the Minwax Polyshades and was very disappointed with how it turned out. I stripped and removed it and then went with the conventional staining using Minwax Dark Walnut stain. Best decision I made for the cabinets. They turned out beautifully. I applied the Helmsman satin on top to protect from UV and water. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
