Does anyone know waht color stain to match our Tuscon Maple wood. I'm installing a combination table and magazine rack along side of the recliner, its made of maple wood but a few shades lighter than our cabinetry.
Thanks for any help.

You can take a sample of the wood (cabnet door or other part) to a good paint supplier and they will mix the stain to match. When you get it home, test iton a scrap piece of yhe wood you are going to use for your project. Let it dry and confirm the matct before you proceed.

Thought I would revive an old thread in case anybody is still interested.

I had to make a piece of maple to install over my bedroom window box when I installed an MCD American Duo shade. I wanted to match the wood to the Tuscan Maple finish, although the new piece wasn't going to be in contact with any other wood. I used General Finishes Maple oil base stain. Then I used the General Finishes High Performance Polyurethane Top Coat gloss clearcoat. The finish matched the existing wood perfectly. Not bad for an amateur.

Hmmm - I thought we had Tuscan Maple?

Does maple grow in Tuscon, AZ? Then again, does it in Tuscany? Sorry, couldn't resist.

Hey - thanks for the tip on the stain - who knows when we'll need it.

I don't know what trees may be found in "Tuscon" - where is Tuscon, anyway?

In Tucson Arizona though, one can find palo verde, mesquite, olive, cypress, orange, lemon, various palms, and a host of other native and non-native trees. Maple? I don't know.

:-)

It's common to transpose the c and s in Tucson. In fact the airport designation is "TUS" which exacerbates the problem.

Yeah - Google doesn't even bother to correct the spelling!
