I agree with JoanneS's comment above. When you stained, how did you achieve the high contrast effect on the woodgrain?

I just sanded to 220, applied the stain with a rag, let stand for 15 minutes, and rubbed it down really, really well with a clean rag. I didn't use a sanding sealer or any type of pre-stain coating, so I'll just chalk it up to dumb luck and good lumber.
