Is there a method for matching an unknown finish on an existing piece of wood?
In my case, I have an old (but nowhere near antique) piece that has had a couple trim pieces fall off. I've managed to re-create the trim pieces, but I'm not sure how to re-create the finish.
The wood is oak. The finish is fairly yellow, similar to what you might find on cheap oak cabinets.
The overall piece is complicated enough that I'd prefer not to strip it all down and re-finish the entire thing. It's also unimportant enough that an exact match is not needed. I'd just like something close.
