How do I stain interior corners?

Q:

I’m a beginning woodworker using oil stain on a cabinet for the first time. When I wipe off the excess, I’m having a hard time getting it out of interior corners. Any advice?

A:

 For those pesky corners, Gabriel, a wiping rag might not conform. First, remove as much excess as you can with the rag. Then, use a dry bristle brush on the rest, pulling outward from the corners. Dry the brush as you go by daubing the excess stain on a paper towel. Continue brushing until the stain blends to match the color of the rest of the project.
