Yes, the softer areas take in more stain than the hard, though it's all relative to how you choose to color it how dramatic the effect is. That's why I use a diluted staining process; nothing happens immediately, but further soaking (put the stain/finish in a can or jar that allows you to immerse the handle)will bring out further detail. After the wood has soaked in your color, you can steel wool the Maple to help the hard areas lighten up a bit. RC
