The provincial stain looks more like the cabinet left of the doorway. The cabinet to the right that is more pink looks like raw red oak to me. If that is the color you are wanting I doubt if you could ever strip the other cabinet to get it that color. Even if you used bleach to get the old stain out it would be more gray than pink. The best way to keep the raw oak look is to use a water based finish only.
