Just a suggestion here, since I noticed that the piece is destined to be placed in an office. When trying to match the stain, make sure that you match the lighting color temperature that is present in the target office environment. Most “offices” tend to be lit with fluorescent tubes, thus your stain-matching shop environment should be the same or very similar.

I found this out while trying to match stain on “parts” of a piece of furniture. Matching pieces that are touching is tough. In other words, what matches under warm colors can be completely off when viewing under cool and daylight lighting.
