    Default Stains colour

    Years ago I used a gel stain on new wood trim to match the old trim that was in the house. Well that gel has disappeared from the stores.

    I have purchased different mahogany liquid stains trying to match the colour...in both water based and oil based they are much too red. I am trying to get a browner colour to the mahogany stain.

    Any ideas how to brown up some of these overly red mahogany stains?

    Thank you
