It seems you have quite a variation in color,if you want to keep the that variation in color then use some of Charles Neil’s blotch control (cherry tends to blotch quite a bit) general finishes Seal-a cel and top coat with General finishes Arm-R-Seal. If you want to try and achieve a more uniform color/look then you might want to use some General finishes dye/stain,with dye stain you can apply additional coats of dye/stain to each piece to try and blend the color together, this might be hard to do given the design of your table. In time your cherry will darken on it’s own so you might just want to use the Charles Neil’s blotch control general finishes Seal-a cel and top coat with General finishes Arm-R-Seal and call it good. If you want to learn more about finishing I strongly recommend Charles Neil’s on line subscription finishing class . Good luck with your project.
