Bob, I tried your suggestions with MinWax Walnut get stain and although the piece is somewhat darker it is nowhere near as dark as I need to get to. It does not appear to me that additional coats of the walnut stain will do the trick.
Should I strip back to the bare wood and start over again? If so, is there a sequence of stains that you would recommend? What I have done so far is merlot, dark mahogany, dark mahogany and walnut for a total of 4 coats of stain on top of initial wood conditioner.
Color matching is so difficult.
