Fresh sawn/sanded Cherrywood is fairly light reddish brown.
Over time Cherry will darken by itself to a medium Reddish Brown color.
When exposed to UV light, such as direct sunlight, or UV lamps, the process can be accellerated some.

If you want the dark Red colors that are typically associated with Cherrywood, you will need to stain or dye it.
