Matching old stain to get even color.

Chris asked 6 years ago

I’m a student at a local school for cabinet making and right now we are doing restoration. I just stripped a very badly refinished rocking chair with a dark brown stain (walnut I think). But I had to do a a lot of sanding on the joints of the seat and now you can see the original color of the wood (beech) in some places. I was wondering how I could match the light parts with the darker parts to get an even color throughout the piece?
