That is a poor job of preconditioning the wood before staining.  There are light and dark wood grains.  You don't want to see too much contrast on the wood grains.  It makes it look very cheap.  They should have kiln dry the wood to remove all moisture first, then apply a coat of preconditioner to level out the absorptivity of the differences in the wood grains so that it will abstain the contrast in wood color.

I wouldn't pay much for those wood pieces, because it's ruined.  It will be like trash hoarding to your house.

Yes, I know that bro.  They rarely kiln dried their woods if at all.  I have seen them doing "conditioning and maintenance job" on 2 year old expensive ebony good furniture at customers´house that has been cracked.  They tell the customers this is normal and expected when that should never have happened.  Those cracked furniture will survive but won´t last.  Their fix is wood fillings wtf.  It´s sad that these beautiful and rare woods are in the process of extinction from over harvesting, and the wood alone is likely worth more than anything these comrades make in the future.  However, the price they charge is quite insane given their low skills.  I can get much better antique furniture at the price they charge from established makers of the past.

I have ebony vanities, game pieces and clocks from the 1880s from France and England that are still in good shape without any cracks from being moved across numerous continents with different humidity exposure.  I also have ebony Japanese chests circa 1910-1930s made from either Malaysian or Indonesian ebony that are in perfect shape. No sign of shrinkage at all.  It´s astounding how Vietnam is blessed with so many beautiful and amazing woods but these dumb comrades don´t have the skills to work them.  The French Art Deco furniture used a lot of Vietnamese and Laotian woods and just look at their perfect condition at auctions in 2020s.  I believe the French kiln dried these woods in Vietnam before shipping to France.  Bao Dai has a few ebony chairs in his summer residences and they are still in good shape.  This suggests that basic wood prepping has been known for a long time and somehow comrades lost this knowledge after the revolution.  Dumbasses.

There shouldn't be too much contrast in the wood grains.  It looks like a patchy job.

You need to have a consistent color.
