    Default How can I make this orange stain color?

    I was at the store the other day and saw a really nice set of wood panel grips on a utility tool. I would love to either buy or make a stain to match the color. Here are some pics. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Leather dyes. Alcohol based and clear (no particles to muddy up the wood grain). Available in a wide variety of colors. And like any stain or dye, you'll need to mix and match colors to get the effect you want across varieties of wood. Even on the same variety of wood, what looks perfect on one piece can easily be off on another.
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    Amber shellac and trans-tint dye, thin with alcohol.
