Being a beginner I have not gotten into the tradition stains, I use Birchwood Casey walnut stain. I just brush it on and then wipe down with a soft wet cotton towel. I finish with many hand rubbed thin coats of Birchwood Casey true-oil, rubbing with 0000 steel wool between coats. After I get the finish like I want it, I let it cure for about 2 weeks and then give it a good rub down with Birchwood Casey stock sheen and conditioner to soften the shine a little. I guess everyone has their on way, but I get the finish I want and don't have to deal with the acid and neutralizing not to mention scorching the stock with the heat.....
