Staining red oak cabinet trim to match white oak.

14 years ago


I'm having some trim, a drawer, and two small panels added to existing 10 year old white oak cabinets in my home. I stained and added a set of white oak cabinets to them five years ago without any problem matching the stain. This contractor used red oak without telling me and when I discovered the difference he told me he couldn't get white oak anymore. Does anyone have any suggestions how to lighten the red in red oak?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
