Trial and error it is. Remember that your finish coat will most likely have some tint in a varying degree of yellow unless you use one of the water based acrylics which are clear. I would make a test piece with 3 sections on it. You can experiment with the amount of time you let the stain dry before wiping it off, the number of coats you apply, and with the finish applied you will see the end result. Be sure to keep notes so you can re-create your exact finish.

I have some wonderful hickory paneling that is 5/8" thick in my living room. I installed a cheapie luan plywood door on a coat closet and to get it to match I used a spanish cedar stain and followed up with a top coat which had enough amber tint to bring it right on the money.
