If you want a NATURAL cherry look, put a couple coats blo on, then park it in the sun for 2 or 3 hours. Turn it a bit once or twice to even exposure. Your done. It will achieve app. 65% of a 200 year old finish in that time. If you don’t believe me, put a piece of masking tape on a piece of scrap and try this. Blo doesn’t help the suntan, you just want to get all the sanding out of the way before the treatment. Once it’s beautiful, you won’t want to mess with it. I know this works; I do it all the time.
