Wood Stain Video
On some projects, you may have to stain a piece of wood to match an existing board. It can be a challenge to match the colors. If you take the existing piece to the paint store, they should be able to give you a close match to the paint or stain color. Back at the jobsite, read the directions on the paint can to get it ready for use. Apply the stain, let it sit for a few minutes. Then, wipe it off. You can get into trouble if you wipe too much off. Apply more stain then you think is necessary. This may help in getting that prefect match.
If you get the right color stain and apply it properly, your new piece of wood will match color-wise and allow the grain of the wood to show through.
