Re: Terrible staining situation
I agree, what products have you used thus far?

By small amount I mean a bead about the size of a pea. Another route is to leave the nails and flaws raw until after staining and then use Color Putty and custom mix a color that closely matches the stained project. Once the areas are filled and wiped clean, apply the sealer. The nice thing about color putty is that by mixing the various stock colors you can make your own custom colors and modify the mix as the grain and shading changes across your work area.
