Matching kitchen cabinet moulding

Just spent alot of money on new kitchen cabinets. Originally was not going to use cabinet base moulding, but because of uneveness in the floor, we had to shim around the island (not the toekick side). The kitchen manufacturer wants over a hundred dollars for an 8 ft. piece of "furniture base moulding". Is it possible to match that glaze look that the cabinets have on a store bought piece of unfinished oak moulding? If so, what products would you use and how? Does this have to be sprayed on? Any advise?

I have gotten stain & finish kits from the cabinet mfg to exactly match their color and finish, but they are extremely expensive. If I recall, the stuff I got was $60 for the 2 parts (1 quart of each). And yes, it had to be sprayed on. It did make a lot of trim, though, so in that respect I guess it would be cheap by comparison!

A good paint store [not paint dept] should be able to help you pick the correct coatings to match [or be very close] the cabinet. They would need a small piece of something with the cabinet finish on it [a drawer front/door will work if there is no scrap] and an extra piece of the raw molding for them to test finishes on.
