I want to use a gel stain on my pine trim and doors and want to match it to my cabinets which have are Oak and have a honey wheat finish. Does anyone know what brand of gel stain and what color I should use?

Take a door of from 1 bring it to the paint store and bring a pine board with you so they can do some color matches.

You will not get the right color just by going off a chart.You need to bring both the door and a piece of wood that you will be using is the only and best way to get the closest match.

Also sorry to tell you, I doubt that a gelstain will not match-up it might get somewhat close.

To get a true color match you would need to use an oil based stain and you will get a match that is almost exact.
