stain for fir door need pics

tatelandApril 27, 2009


my cabinets will be natural cherry, red oak floor. Should I stain the kitchen interior door to match the cherry? I have tried natural tung oil but feel its too light, the door is fir, I dont want it to matchy matchy, or do I? Any pics would be great What brand and name of stain do you suggest?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

CVG fir looks best with a natural finish in my opinion. I would put shellac over the tung oil followed by a coat of varnish.

Please do not stain it with anything labeled "red oak" or "cherry"
