I’m with GNP, but I’ve been using tung oil rather than linseed. You get deep, instant color on the cherry and there is virtually no blotching. I made a mistake on my first cherry project by trying to stain it. Never again. However, I’ve had good results with wipe-on poly. I use 0000 steel wool between coats and then wax as a final. Works well on walnut, too.
