My husband is making a 'hope chest' for our bedroom to match the existing furniture...made out of pine. He is using both pine wood and pine plywood and cedar wood for this. We would like to know how we can treat one of these woods to match the other, to get a look of dark ebony, to match the existing wood. The dark ebony stain is not available in our area to get the exact look...but we are hoping to get something close. Any thoughts or ideas would help us out alot. I think I have actually seen this on one of the shows, but forget what the solution was. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
