black to match the tv stand. :cool:
That was my goal but they didn’t have any. However, we bought a colorless one so that we can make our own color. I say “our” because my older brother is helping me build it

Stop looking at stain then. Dyes are much better for ruining nice wood by changing the color than stain. Couple that with using lowes or any big box store wood, so very likely not a deciduous tree, coniferous wood species don't take stain well. TransTint is my favorite and only dye pigments
I will use.

@Smirkish is a Basdass cabinet finisher with a lot more experience than I. She could probably help you get to the color you want. If you want black, paint or dyes would be my MO.
I’ll be going back for a few more things, so I’ll definitely look more into the dyes and paints
