What is the stain (brand and colour name/number idf possible) used on the cabinets of 2011 Landmarks? If I make some accessories or add some more shelves, I'd like to match the colour as closely as possible.

Of course the factory stain might only be available commercially, so I may have to go with the best match from my hardware store.

Thanks.

Knock, knock. Anyone home at the factory?

Bill, take a drawer or cabinet door along with a sample of the bare wood you intend to use, to a good paint store, and they will match the stain.

Peace

Thanks Dave. I know that I can do that, but I was hoping for some detail from the factory guys.

Bill,

Our supplier uses a custom mix for our cabinetry. They have to custom mix, because depending on the grain of the wood, they may have to lighten or darken to get a consistent color.

I recommend taking a drawer to a paint store and have them try and match.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kary. I'll do the paint store thing when I get to that point.
