Rift Sawn Oak Cabinets with Veneer- stain help

We had cabinets installed (rift sawn oak), and I was hoping for something like the stock photo shown below.
As you can see in the installed pictures, the veneer took the stain much lighter than the rails of the cabinet - clearly two kinds of woods. It looks almost like checkerboard or lattice, definitely not what I’m looking for.
Is there anything we can do to remedy this and get (even slightly) more uniform color?
