I have read through a couple of books in the past about staining wood, but don't recall any technique on custom mixing to match an existing stain. I want to mix a stain to match the stain of my oak floor, that I want to apply to some trim for around some stairs. Does anybody have any sure-fire techniques...or is it simply trial and error on some scrap until I get it right?

Here's what I have...
-Oak floor with discontinued "gunstock" color.
-2 shades of the same brand oil stain that are both close, but not quite.
-some old jars,10 ml graduated cylinder and scrap 'test' oak
