Cherry Stain

I'm getting ready to cut down my front (over the windshield) cabinets so that I can install a 32" LCD TV. Anybody have information on matching the cherry stain that was used in 2003? Or, is that a stain that I can buy that will match?

I'd recommend you take a chunk of the stained wood you cut out to a quality local paint shop and ask them to match the stain. I've had good luck with this approach on projects in the past. A pro can usually match stain or paint real close, although with stain the wood you plan to stain needs to be supplied as well since different woods will take a particular stain differently.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

When I asked this question before, someone mentioned Minwax was the supplier and a tech (at the now defunct mothership) verified that. I've not tried it though. Mine is the lighter color so my input wouldn't matter. Maybe Mark Hurrah could tell you. He is the Tech-On-Retainer for the Alpine Coach Association. Are you a member?

One of my doors was damaged from a bath vent being left open. To match the cherry stain I used Minwax Red Chesnut 232. It is really hard to match any stain where the stain is mixed with lacquer when applied.
