can you mix and/or layer gel wood stain?
in trying to come up with the color i want for new kitchen cabinet doors, i'm wondering if i can mix gel wood stains to get a shade i like. also, is it possible to layer stains...i.e., apply a thin coat of one color as a base and then a second coat in another color? i will be staining red oak, fresh doors, and i am ready for some serious experimentation.
also, i will need to do a small amount of refinishing on great condition existing cab boxes. frames are solid oak and boxes are high quality wood veneer that i can sand to bare (i've tried this already on one area). but i'm wondering if i can just rough sand them if color experimenting shows i can match or nearly match the door color. i hope you know what i mean.
