I see two options: 1) go to Homestead or General websites and look at transtint or other concentrated tinting products. You would have to buy two or three different colors and do some experimenting to find the color you desire. 2) find a sample that is an identical or very close match for color. Then take some bare, sanded lumber scraps to local Sherwin Williams store (Odem Medo Rd.) and ask them to mix samples and, if you’re happy with the result, have them make up the stain (solvent based).
