Wood stain

Nov 8, 2001
I was in my workshop and so tried three different MINWAX stains, red mahogany (No. 215) mahogany ( No. 205), and English chestnut (No. 216 I think) on white oak. The English chestnut seemed to give the best likeness. I will varnish them tomorrow and then compare. I am doing some work on my boat and just had these stains on hand.

I just bought and stained with Varithane? (home depot) Golden mahogany. Seems close, but I havent installed the wood yet.
Putting in the new center bed and used oak quarter round as rails.
