You do beautiful work. It would be a shame to cover this with paint. I vote for varnish :).

Yes, I vote for something that will let the wood/grain show through.

Beautiful cabinet. Let the beauty of the wood show, go with the varnish.

Very nice work, I would go with polyurethane so you can see the grain. I agree with luv2learn that it would be a shame to paint over cherry. Mike

This cabinet has beautiful lines and the wood grain to intensify the lines. A clear finish will complement the architectural lines!!!! Nicely done!

Awesome project! I’d sand it to 320 or 400 grit and finish it with oil and wax. That will give it a great look and it will be irresistibly smooth to touch. The cherry will turn many shades darker with exposure to sunlight over time. Boiled linseed oil turns to a beautiful color and is easy enough to work with.
