We have an introduction section where you can say a few words about yourself. If you fill out your profile in your "User Control Panel", you can list any hobbies, experience or other facts. You can also list your general geographical location which would be a help in answering some questions.

Why use a product like that when there are so many choices for products for interior use?

Depending on the wood you use you might be able to just use a interior oil stain. I'm not sure what is available in the UK. The stain you have in the link is a deck stain and the best way I could describe it is thinned down paint. It would obscure the natural look of the wood. You might locate a picture of the look you want and we could maybe help you get there.

I understand that wood oil or wood stain is better, but the colour range seems to be very limited locally (in Lithuania where I live). I saw at least 10-15 different colours (http://www.asepas.lt/index.php?page=Aliejus medienai&language=EN). I am still wondering how to resolve TVT5078 colour to a more popular range, like RAL system and to try to obtain at least the pigment abroad.

I'm having dificulty with the link. If the color is the TVT 5078 on this chart then the pigments you would need would be raw umber and black. http://www.vivacolor.lv/color-cards/tikkurila-valtti-koka-parklajumi/ You could make your own. Stain has a binder such as linseed oil to hold it together and color tints and thinned with a solvent. The color tints are the pigments that a paint store has in their machines they use when they mix a paint color for you. It's just on stains umbers, black, reds and yellows are used mostly.

You could also use the exterior stain you first mentioned but I would go slightly darker and apply the stain and wipe the excess off so it doesn't obscure the wood.

TVT5078 Kataja
No need to post the link mate , way ahead of you there .


Kataja = Juniper


That is the colour that the paint company is trying to replicate .

It should not be hard to find paint specialists who can mix up the shade of paint/stain you want , a non toxic paint , one that is safe for interior use

Absolutely no problem to mix the desired colour. Only a small problem - how to convert manufacturer individual colour number into RAL standard.

If you are not mixing new cabinets with old ones with another stain then an a exact match isn't that critical. Just measure and record the amount of each pigment you put into the mix for future reference. Be sure you have more than enough stain so you don't have to mix more in the same run. That usually isn't a problem. Usually you end up trying to make a quart and end up with more than a gallon tinkering with the colors. I usually start with no more than a ounce or two and see what pigments it needs. Often you mis-guess and have to throw it out and start over. If you are trying to match some other cabinets you will need to tinker with the color but also put a clear coating on it to see if that changes the color. It's also good when you are matching a color you take the sample and the test piece of wood out in the direct sun to compare them.

The manufacturer's individual colour number and the RAL standard mean nothing to a good paint specialist .
They mix by Eye .

Thats' why they are specialists , and not mere technicians ;)
