XLR Cabinet Stain Match

Has anybody been able to match the standard XLR cabinet stain? If so, what's the brand, name and finish? Thanks.

I know on our 2013 395 XLR minwax hickory gel stain on maple is as close of a match as I could find. As you can tell by the two pieces I made when I took the car radio out and installed a home theater system. Click image for larger version

R3J, is it hickory or chestnut (reddish)? If reddish a search of "what did you do to your XLR today", shows what I used on my 29hfs. Hard to search and post on a smartphone or I would do it.

Just helping out WW since he is always helping others...

Post #124 & #126 have the information. Here is a sample of the post -

"I found that on light wood, such as a clear pine or birch, Miniwax English Chestnut (233) is vert close and by adding dark walnut (2716) AFTER the Chestnut you can push it more towards brown. I am still using some old cherry, so that didn't match all that well. I tried the dark walnut only to the cherry and it came out OK. These are oil base stains. I topped it with 2 coats of satin clear."
