I have been very happy with the results using potassium dichromate and Liberon Finishing Oil on cherry.
I usually use 6-7 coats of the Liberon Finishing oil over the potassium dichromate. I never tested for comparison but I believe using potassium dichromate compares to a few years of natural darkening. Allways do a sample board sanded to 220 including all the coats of oil before you apply anything to your project. I highly recommend this approach.
