Help! Sticky and shiny patches on deck after staining

Ok, I am new to this forum and not a professional by any means. I just stained our mahogany porch with Australian Timber oil and it looks great. However, there are a few problems.

1. Part of the boards look way too dark and dull whereas the other boards are rich in color.
2. There are sticky and shiny patches. I do have mineral spirits and paint thinner I can try.

I applied the stain with a lambswool applicator. I tried to really rub it in, however, it was hard because the applicator was so large (on a pole). The porch was prepped well.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the forums!

How long ago did you apply the oil?
what have the temps and humidity been like?
