Sounds like you’re having a heck of a time replicating that tone.
My naive speculation is that MP blonde wash shellacs most projects pre-assembly.
Perhaps he was working with some particularly selected sapwood on the darker side.

But, what do I know. I guess I am just here to empathize.

Reminds me of a once-upon-a-time project where I needed to replace a dougfir stair tred in a 100+ year old home. Matching the tone with the older treds turned into a long trial and a complicated recipe.

Complicated recipes don’t seem to be in MP’s MO.
