I’m working on a new dresser project and the majority of the pieces are Oak. I’m having a tough time finding some trim pieces in Oak though for going around the drawer faces. Can someone give me some advice on the best way to dye/stain the two woods together so I don’t end up having different look between the two parts.

Thanks

You could mill your own trim pieces. Just sayin’...

You can’t, they will never look the same. Use a contrasting wood to trim out the drawer front. See my drawer front project for an example.

+1. Why can’t you make your own trim?

Easiest way to make pine look like oak is to use oak instead ;)

There is no way to make pine look like oak. Make your own trim, it is easy, especially for a small project like a dresser.
