If I put a oil based satin on raw wood and after it has dried put a
oil based coat poly over it will it mess up the stain finish.
I think I read somewhere that the poly might soften the stain because
both are are oil based.

If you don't properly wipe off the excess stain after application and

But for the most part you should not have a problem at all providing you
read and follow the instructions on the product can.
I have been using oil base varnish over oil based stains for 30 plus years.
As always test on scraps so that you will not be testing on your project.
