Best matching wood stain

I have a few projects that will involve staining some wood to match the inside wood on my 2014 Wind River. Anyone know of the ones that match the best? List other years of stain here also for other modders to use.

Trial and error is the only way. The end result of staining depends on the stain, the wood, the stain application method, and the phase of the moon.....

If your rig is like ours, right out of the factory the various wood finishes and wood simulations don't match.

On my Winnebago I had to match the wood (soft maple) , Sherwin Williams did the stain match. Took 3 tries to get it right. Make a sample of each try and finish it all the way. Water base clears don't tone very much. Solvent base clears will effect tone.

I guess if it's close, it's good enough. I just don't want to be buying several cans of the stuff.
Would be nice if Coop would let me know.

Highway...here you go. A copy of my previous post. Don't worry about using the same stain...just keep blinds closed and don't turn the lights on...lolololo. give Dave or Gail a call. Or when at the factory get a sample.

Can you tell me the name or color of the stain that matches the cabinets
in our Outdoors RVs.
Thanks
The person who did the work used clear polyurethane stain over a piece of walnut. He say it will lighten up as its ages.
He did a wonderful job.

Hope this helps

Highway 16,

Buy a gallon paint can of your favorite color and paint everything. Problem solved, forever!

Highway,
If you remember, I am a soon to be retiring master cabinetmaker.
I use M.L. Campbell finishing products. (they own Sherwin Williams).
Get yourself a gallon of clear stain base. Get some of the universal pigments from S. Williams, and mix your own stain. OR - all S. Williams stores have spectrometers in house. Take a drawer front or sample piece to the store, and have them spec it. It will get you damn close to your color. Also take a scrap of the wood you will be using. They can tweak the stain and make you a gallon. Stay away from the water based stains - for an RV, and changes in atmospheric conditions, they don't hold up as well as solvent based stains. Clear acrylic top coats are OK for interior home use, but I would question them for RV use as well.

Bill

I just got a PM. Sherwin Williams owns M.L. Campbell. Sorry for the error - goes back to two factory reps that told me the opposite, years ago. I deal with both companies.
