A couple of comments:

1) Sounds like Moron is having a bad day . . .

2) I have heard that cherry is tricky to dry (but very stable once dry) – better make sure it isn’t already knackered.

3) Whatever you do, the wood will take on the environment you store it in. You haven’t said what that is (as far as I see) and so it’s hard to say what to do. Many use the rule “1 year for each inch of thickness” when air drying so it may well be fairly close to equilibrium already. Better test it . . .
