Why Choose Cherry Wood for Your Project?

Yes, it’s bad news for beginners because cherry gives a tough time while staining even to the expert woodworkers, carpenters, and DIYers. Like pine, maple, and birch, cherry is comparatively difficult to stain. No matter how hard you try, most of the time, the attractive grain patterns end up with splotchy areas, darker in color. We would never recommend a beginner to stain cherry wood. Can Cherry Wood be Stained Lighter? Cherry wood is also one of the more consistent hardwoods out there, retaining its shape and position when kiln-dried or pressure-treated. It should come as no surprise then that this wood is one of the more popular choices for making elaborate furnishings for homes, or for high-end hotels due to it being readily available and its ability to fit in virtually any setting without the need for such treatment.

The sapwood of the Cherry tree is significantly lighter in appearance and is therefore used for applications conducive to this texture, although both are naturally quite stunning and can be used to create absolute masterpieces in the hands of the right crafter. Okay, so we know that this wood looks pretty, but aesthetics can be modified and improved upon pretty easily these days, the important question is what cherry wood is like to work with.

Test the woodstain on a sample piece: Before applying the stain to your project, it's essential to test it on a scrap piece of cherry wood. This allows you to see how the colour will interact with the wood's natural hue and determine if any adjustments are needed. Depending on the size of the board you will be using you could either sand it by hand using some sanding paper or with a power sander. Ensure that the board has been sanded adequately and evenly, and once you are satisfied ensure that your board is clear of any wood particles leftover from the sanding process by giving it a once-over with a cloth. Once your board has been sanded down and cleared of wood, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process. A woodworking friend of mine shared this video by Ralph Chapman with me that helped him set up his workshop.

It also protects wood from moisture and sun damage, preventing the wood from breaking in freezing temperatures and unsightly discolouration. Wood isn’t exactly a new material; we’ve used it to create some of the greatest marvels of the 20th century before we discovered how to process metal in large quantities. It should come as no surprise then that companies like Howard Products have come a long way in the quality and versatility of their wood treatment products since their inception in 1969.

Stains for maple, cherry wood and walnut

Cherry wood itself comes in a limited color which is between light pink to rich reddish-brown. However, cherry wood stain gives you more choices depending on the density of different materials used in the formulation. Still, you’re always limited to a few colors while considering the custom nature of wood. That’s why you can’t go too much against the natural color of any wood. Here’s the list of options you have in cherry wood stains. You can have more, but these are the most used ones. Most of the darkening that will occur with cherry wood happens within the first six months. After six months, the wood may continue to darken but will do so much more slowly. The wood will continue to darken for years, but it may not be noticeable. Once the stain has been applied to the cherry wood, use the cloth to rub it in gently, but thoroughly, ensuring that you cover the entire board and that the stain is applied evenly across the surface. Your technique can range from working from one end for the board to the other, or simply working from the center of the board outward toward the edges. Why? Cherry wood has a tendency for blotching when too much stain is applied, this way you are able to regulate not only how much stain is applied to the wood, but also how much stain the wood absorbs at a given time. Choose the right stain: Cherry wood has a reddish-brown tone, so it pairs well with stains that complement its natural colour. Options like warm amber, deep cherry, or mahogany stains can enhance its warm reddish hues. Apply the stain in even coats, following the manufacturer's instructions, until you achieve the desired depth and colour richness.
