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

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best staining products ever Have used Minwax products all my woodworking life. Never a problem if used properly and on appropriate materials. February 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Please don't use this product The first coat was applied with a staining brush and did not go on evenly. It also took much longer to dry than was printed on the label. Hoping to even out the stain, I put on second coat, this time with a staining pad. Even the 2nd coat went on unevenly, resulting in less than satisfactory-looking floors. It does improve the look of the wood, but the unevenness is noticeable and the drying time is too long. January 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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! December 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Has applications where other stains won't do. This product has it's uses but not as a general stain. I've done plenty of staining but would never use the Gel on a floor or tabletop where regular Minwax stain and Polyurethane sealer would do a much better job. If you have a nice clean piece of wood, use the regular stain and Poly. Where Minwax stain has the consistency of water, the Gel is more like Mayonaise and acts as both a stain and a paint with each having an advantage. I had an old chair with many spindles in it and couldn't sand all of the old stain off without stripping it which I didn't want to do because I have 6 chairs and it was labor intensive to do it. So... I sanded all the varnish off and some of the old stain with a 180 grit paper and applied the gel with a cloth. I wiped it on thin where the old stain was still there, and thicker where most of the old stain was sanded off. I did one chair as a test and it came out awesome. After letting it dry for a day I put on Minwax wipe on poly with a cloth, let it dry, and went over it with a 00 steel wool pad to smooth it out and then added another two coats of wipe on poly. Let the whole thing dry for a couple of days before using. July 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst stain on the market stain bleeds back a day or so after applying does not dry like it should .if you apply polly the next day it will form areas where it will move the stain .by far the worst stain i ever used . the next time i will take the time and buy a good quality stain like bona February 1, 2015
