i'm not sure of the chemical makeup of wood conditioner, but its basically a clear water-thin liquid that is used to neutralize the wood that enables it to take stain more evenly. as noted, maple can be prone to appear splotchy if not treated. I believe cherry is also known to do this. i would think any professional grade paint store would carry it. the only one i've ever used is named Bix, but i'm sure there would be other brands as well.
