Softwood door lining - vaneer oak doors
My door linings are softwood.
I am thinking of getting vaneer oak doors pre finished.
What can I do yo the linings to match the door colour as I don't want to paint them? Is staining or clear varnish do the job?

all depends on what colour are the vaneer doors are. If they are a dark vaneer I would say a stain because the more coats the darker it will become to match vaneer.
But if the vaneer is a lighter one then the clear varnish but don't take my word on this as I just fit them.

If they’re Oak veneer, get an Oak coloured stain.

If a dark veneer door would change the lining to hardwood easier to match colour
