If you seal the wood, the stain can't get it. Because the wood is sealed .

Strip everything down to wood.

Grain filler,
stain,
sealer,
clearcoat.

Or, skip the sealer and clearcoat, and do an oil finish.

There is also a lot of sanding with various grits involved. I don't wanna go into it.

As many coats of stain until you get the colour you want With clear coat it depends on what your using, if its nitro lacquer you can go up to like 15 coats.

Get testing on scrap with stain and then clear coat over it.
