You are a lucky person, That is great. I hope you guys have a wonderful time. By the way say HI to Elvis for me. I'm stuck at home and thinking of winter. Everything closes Saturday here in Virginia. That's State and COE camp grounds. I think they allow spaces 4 open at each CG but no utility's. I'll have to check on that. Even through your not coming this way but some others might be traveling SOUTH....

I do have a question for anyone. I have what FR calls Cherry Wood cabinets. I'm tiring to find a stain the same color. I can't even get close. I want to use clear pine for the wood and tie it into the same as the rest. Has anyone know of a stain that would work? Thanks for your help it is driving me crazy to match it. FR will not sell it or supply it.

I dunno about the color, but gel stain is prolly the best choice. Prolly take several coats to get the pine very dark.

My guess it is not a stain but a dye and then a clear coat. If you have a woodcraft or other wood working store near you see them about a match. I do a lot of wood working and use dyes a lot. Much better look than stain. Most cherry finishes are not cherry at all but maple or alder made to look like what we perceive as cherry. Real cherry looks nothing like that.

Real cherry when first finished is light but naturally darkens over time. They don't have that kind of time os the simulate.

You are spot on! I think Glenn should rethink using the (Clear Pine),F/R uses a more (open grain) wood. I have a (Witch Doctor Brew) that I mixed up for small Wood repairs (Fake Cherry) in our unit. Close but NO cigar! Youroo!!

You have to mix 2 and sometimes 3 different stains to get it close.
