    We bought a house and had to remove the stairway carpet. We found that the wood under the carpet was a section of plywood while the rest of the step is oak stained hardwood. Is it possible to match the stain so that it looks reasonably similar? The grain on the hardwood is very dark. It looks enhanced with a medium or dark walnut stain. I sanded one section and tried to enhance the grain but it didn't work. Picture attached. Thanks for any help.
