Its not a double but wood is wood
I use a airbrush for large areas , and a small brush for the grain.
I use enamel paints for the grain, and when putting on the finish I do lose some of the graining.
I put on grain, and then a coat of finish and repeat until I have the look I want.
It takes several applications but it gives it depth.

I mixed artist oil paint with 2 part epoxy. It seems to work without being dissolved by the thinner. I had tried spraying with lacquer over the artist oil paint but the acetone also dissolved the oil paint. I was going to paint, then put clear thinned epoxy but the thinner was acetone. The oil over the epoxy mixed oil paint did not dissolve the paint. Not exactly what I wanted but I think it will work. I think there is still a better way but just don't know it.

I've just received a set of furniture touch up markers which I found on the big auction site - eb#y which look to be the business. Just got a patch of light filler to colour on a repaired fore end. I'll let you know how it turns out.
I thought they were just permanent markers but it seems there is more to them, ingredients include resin acids, rosin acide and lots of other esters etc.
Not sure if they're available over the pond, I'm in the UK but it may be worth a search for furniture touch up markers.

Milt, you might try these.

I have ones from Lowe's that are just markers, I like these because you also get fill-in sticks.

Thanks David. I bought it. Great product to have around the house and to touch up stocks. I solved the immediate problem by mixing artist oil paint with two part clear epoxy and I do not get running or dissolving. Too early to take pictures.

If I do this again, I would buy some of the Mohawk fine line markers also to add grain and fool the eye. For example, after filling a round hole you might add grain along the top and bottom edge to draw the eye horizontally and not see the circle anymore. Of course it takes more than that but you get the idea.

Then you need to study the instruction films on :

that SKB sent.

Of course, they make it look easy. It will take some practice.
