Recreating an edge treatment with maple

I am matching some existing woodwork in maple (see photo). I have come up a good color match for the stain and found a router bit to match the edge shape. What I have not been able to match is the dark color in the two grooves of the edge shape. It feels a little rough all around and it is not perfectly straight. If I sand to 150, seal and stain everything, the edge along the grain has the same appearance as the flat surface. The end grain edge is a little darker, but is not very even across the whole span. If I donít seal the grooves, it is very blotchy. Does anyone have any idea how this effect was achieved?

Thanks,
Paul

Its more than likely a glaze.

Apply a high solids sealer over your stained piece of wood to protect the stain. Then apply a glaze of the same color, you may have to tint it, let it dry, then take a red scotch brite and remove the excess but leave it in the hang up. if you dont like it, you can take naptha or mineral spirits and wipe off the glaze and try again.

I think you may be right about using a glaze. I will try that next.
