Problems staining white oak trim board
We are recreating the oak trim in our recently remodeled kitchen in our 100 year old house. The previous owners had gutted much of the original woodwork in the two rooms we are working on so we have to start from scratch.
The trim is quartersawn oak, about 5" on the windows and doors and 7" high on the baseboards so the grain really shows. Hubby has already stripped the paint off the trim and doors and refinished them in the rest of the house so we have some experience in the color we want but alas, no patina to work with.
Here's the real problem. Some of the boards vary in color from others (maybe I should say are darker than others)and hence, stain a different color. Any advice on how to help even the color out?
