New to this skill so I am unfamiliar on how to begin. I have a Hem Fir Exterior door that I would like to stain. The door color shown in the attached pic is the exact color I want on our door: Anyone out there have an idea as to what color this is and/or what I should specifically use? I’m at a loss … Thx for any suggestions!

I would suggest you PM Charles Neil. Hands down he’s go to expert for finishing anything. He’s always will to lend advice.

Go thru the Jocks pages, you’ll find him at the top of page 10.

Go to your local paint supply store. They should be able to pick/custom make something for you.

Go to a store and pick out the color. Do some research about blotch prevention, I think hemlock blotches badly.
