Blotched Maple Finish

My friend stained all of my maple wood trim and it came out blotched. He didn't do a practice piece as he should have. Is there a way to remedy this without purchasing more of this expensive wood?

Thank you.

Blotched Maple Finish

not likely. You needed to use a preconditioner first to avoid the stain soaking in differently. You could try to sand it down and then apply the preconditioner then re-stain.

You might be able to blend it all in a bit better with a gel stain having some opacity to it.
