Custom dark stain

Q: We are building a house and we’re trying to find a dark stain that will compliment our modern interior. We most likely will have a 4″ or 5″ Oak plank or a Walnut. I looked at the Ebony stain, but it seems to have a green tint.

We also mixed Jacobean with the Ebony and it still shows a bit green. Can you recommend a deep, rich, dark brown stain color for us?

A: You will likely need to get a mix from a paint store. I have one near me that mixed up a dark chocolate brown. It was quite nice. I don’t know that you will get one “off the shelf”.
