Has anyone had success matching the wood and stain used on the cabinet doors? I'd like to make some custom doors and need a little guidance on where to start. Getting real close to the current look would be great. Thanks for the input.
Location: Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia
Trailer: 2015 5.0 TA
I was able to match the ETI oak paneling pretty well even though it has some red in it. I used red oak veneer, but any red oak panel may do. Then I had a paint store tint some Minwax Polycrylic finish, clear satin. Put on 3 coats and it is hard to tell the new from the old. Formula for the tint is C1, L+, U+
When I ordered the trailer I asked ETI to toss in a small (4") square each of the counter laminate, the wood laminate, and the upholstery. When it comes time to shop for patch up material, I'll just take along what I need.
The doors and the paneling seem to have a different finish, at least on our 19. It looks like the doors are Red Oak, finished in a natural polyurethane while the laminated imitation-Oak plywood has a darker color. I successfully used Windsor Oak in the Minwax Woodsheen product line to do a pretty good match recently. When I get a chance, I'll post a picture.
