My favorite Cherry finish.

First use a mix of 50% Zinners Sealcoat with 50% Denatured Acohol ( this will stop the bloching assoiciated with cherry ). Sand after dry with 320 grit ( hand sand preferred )
Then apply General Finishes Black Cherry. I know some don’t like to stain cherry, but this stain gives a near instant aged look and is it easy to control the color.
Then apply the topcoat of your choice.
I have also seen Norm use a poly stain mix on Cherry. ( the Martha Washington Candle Table )
