replacing damaged spindle on antique table

I found a very old side/lamp/hall table (Victorian?)in very bad condition. I am new to this, but using the great info from this site have been restoring it and putting it back together. I need to replace a turned spindle-like piece that runs horizontally at the bottom between the two table legs. The legs appear to be solid mahogany or some reddish wood.

The only idea I had was to buy a spindle piece from Van Dykes that is close in size and style. If I buy an oak one, will it be hard to stain it to match the rest of the table?

I want to preserve the piece as much as possible. Is this the right way to go?

Thank you1
