I have no finishing experience except what I’m working on right now. So as to staining wood. Does/should the wood get darker with more coats? Using Minwax to match a piece of flooring to existing hardwood flooring. Took sample pieces to the store and got a couple of small cans that matched the closest but when I stained my sample piece none of the stains really come close to matching. The wood is white oak, sanded and scraped.
So far I’ve used Dark Walnut, Ebony(accent pieces around the door), and Ipswitch Pine. My hardwood floor was titled Gunstock in Ash wood. Thinking of mixing the Dark Walnut and Ipswitch Pine together and trying that next.
And do I need to sand between stain coats? I’ll try to post pictures of my test piece when I get back home.
