This is one of my early projects, a cherry side table. I got the design from The New Yankee Workshop, and the style is Shaker, more or less. I added the drawer knob later.
The finish is Danish oil and wax, which I have used on pretty much everything I’ve made from cherry. I generally flood on the first coat, then wet-sand two more coats, followed by 1-2 coats of wax. It’s very easy to apply (if a bit labor-intensive) and easy to renew when needed.
