Oh, all right! Since you now have the project well-sanded, have cleaned it and prepped it well, it's time to apply stain. But what type of stain? Do you want to use oil-based or water-based? What about an all-in-one that includes polyurethane in one step so you don't have to apply separate protective coats after the fact? And what color should you choose?
Frankly, at this point, you're down to personal preference. The best way to answer these questions is trial and error, and your own particular tastes. In other words, keep a few scraps around on which to test a few oil and water-based stains, and even an all-in-one.
Personally, I prefer oil-based stains, as I like the rich color that they provide and the longer working times than water-based stains. The advantage of water-based versions is that they dry fast and don't have the overpowering odor of oil-based stains (not to mention easier clean-up), but they have a tendency to raise the grain of the wood, which means more sanding after applying the stain.
Either way, if you have tested a few on scraps of wood that have been well-sanded and had the pre-stain conditioner applied, you'll have a representative sample of what your final stain should look like.
