Jason,
Started with honey pine and dark oak. Tried a number of mixes on scrap. It's a true crap shoot. Found that the minwax stain and varnish worked the best. You can get small cans as you will not need much. GOOD LUCK

Thank you raveson. I believe I will carry a drawer or cabinet door with me to try to match it up. Maybe that will get me close anyhow...

You guys must be young. When I was a younger guy the first thing we did to customize our rides was to remove all the emblems.
