So for my case, I should try to put a little yellow and black dye in the denatured alcohol and tone the wood. How do I know how much to put on? On youtube, they spray layers of toner to build up color. Using your method I will only apply toner once, correct? Any barrier between toner and stain? Sorry for all these questions. I am learning from step 1. [tongue] [tongue]
Trans Tint dyes.

I tone prior to stain and use denatured alcohol as the carrier.

Medium or dark brown on the wood.

The yellow will only affect the BAC is added to it. Someday I'll try dye in BAC but I have access to the colorants so it has not been necessary for me to do so.

You have to make sample pieces to know the answer to some of your questions.

I'm very surprised there is not a finish store in or near Philly. I'll find out tomorrow if there is one, if so where it is.

Spoke to the finish specialist for SW today.

There are 2 locations in PA.

Macungie (near Philly);

Ambridge (near Pittsburg);

https://www.sherwin-williams.com/store-locator/product-finishes-facility/ambridge/pa/1497

Either of these stores will be able to match what ever you want and supply you with what you need. They should be able to sell you KA+ by the gallon also.

If they are not willing to do this for you the Countryside Il. store told me they would take care of this. Send me or them the color sample, some test pieces, they'll mix up what you need and ship it back to you. I've never been in the store but they're great people to deal with, If my store can't create the match I call Countryside with a color match to a SW color or send them a  sample--about 4 days latter I have the tinted KA+ in the volume and sheen I need. I mix most of my own dye/stain colors but would have no hesitation to have them mix one I can't get right.

Below is the latest mix they did for me.
