Cherry is moderately heavy, hard, and strong. It machines, sands, and finishes beautifully. Finished with a clear top coat, it will gradually darken to a deep, rich red with exposure to sunlight.
These finishes are achieved by applying a stain and wiping off the excess, allowing the natural wood grain to remain prominent.
These finishes are applied by spraying a toner on the wood to achieve an even, consistent color, particularly on wood species that tend to take stain unevenly.
These finishes use both a wiping stain and a toner to achieve deep, rich colors.
