We recently put a stick built addition on our 30 year old log home. The logs were re-stained and sealed 3 years ago. We are putting log siding on the new addition and hoping to stain to match the existing structure. The new wood sticks out like a sore thumb because it has not aged. Any suggestions for better matching the existing logs? Should we use a darker stain for now and re-stain in a few years after they have aged? Should we sand the log siding prior to staining? Thank you!

You should Osborne brush prior to staining. You will have to experiment, nut try brushing a real light coat of a darker stain on and then a coat of the color you are looking for.
