Staining over Wood Glue

I'm having a very hard time staining over wood glue. It has been sand totally off and yet where there was glue it is much lighter than the oak. If I were to sand it all done again, and then shellac where the glue is, could I then stain again to get a consistent stain?

Any thoughts on how to get consistent stain colour with the oak and the glue?

You can not get stain to work over glue. The glue seals the pores preventing the penetration of the stain. YOu must thoroughly sand all the glue off. To test how you are doing, wipe the area with mineral spirits. This will highlight the glue blobs. Sand until they are gone.

Staining over Wood Glue

Obviously the trick is to not to use too much glue. Having said that the best thing to do with glue once it gets on the wood is to let it dry thoroughly. After it is completely dry remove it with a sharp chisel or wood plane. Sanding tends to push the glue back into to the wood and smear it around, so you end up losing more wood when sanding.
