Douglas Fir Front door help!!!

We just installed a brand new Douglas for front door. I liked the natural color and wanted to keep it as natural as possible because our house is a dark charcoal grey. I picked minwax beechwood and they tested it one area of the door and it looked good. However when they stained the whole door it was completely uneven and looked white washed and yellow in some areas. Some parts of it look good and natural but some areas look horrible. My question is can the door be re-sanded and just sealed with a clear coat to fix this problem or has anyone had any luck with a good stain color for a fir door? I have researched but can’t find anything and am so upset about this whole process… thanks for my help or ideas.
