Wood work stain

Been trying to find stain that will match the wood work in our trailer. Anybody ever fix scratches, and if you did what kind of stain did you use. It seems that the stuff I bought looks close at Lowes but after it dries it is way off. Like to get something a little closer. Thanx Ernie

believe it or not I use crayon, just regular crayons, you can blend colors to get the shade you want. I have fixed many a nick and scratch with a crayon then polish it.

I have also seen the "stain crayons" in lowes that are supposed to be a pretty good match. You could remove one of your doors and bring it to the store with you. I imagine the color varies greatly between runs

You can get felt tip wood color markers too. Check Lowes and Home Depot. Putty stick is also a good choice.

I had a few cans of used stains in the workshop and came up with a custom mix to match the color. Not rocket science, just trial and error. When I found a match I was smart enough to save some in a jar.

That is a good way to do it. And just think the formula is a secret, even to you..
