matching texture brightness and colour(gimp)

i am trying to match brightness and colour of two wood textures.first i tried manually,-adjust curves to match values(histogram) and then use sample colorize.then i found a script called histogram match http://www.silent9.com/blog/archives/162-GIMP-Script-Histogram-Match.html - this gives decent result.i would like to know any other way of doing it.i am posting sample of two wood tex for testing.how to match the light wood to darker one?



my result using histogram match script(hsv mode)

Gimp’s [G’MIC] Transfer colors - not sure which is better, at least different way to do it…

i will try that.histogram match seems better - gets the whole colour range from source.
