Here's what oak looks like on my raised dinette project. Seems to fit in quite well.
That looks great Ron! Thank you.
Did you add any brown tints to the red oak? I'm working under the refrigerator so it's all some kind of printed wood or plastic.
The inner edges of the openings are lightly painted brown and I went to my paint store and got a pint of touchup. The color seems to be predominantly brown but doesn't clash with any of red oak in the cabinets (like under the sink and oven).
The printed grain pattern is compatible with the oak and I see reds in much of it. It is also used on thin plastic 'L' and 'dimensional' like under the refrigerator.
Any matching tricks are appreciated!
