I used waterlox on cherry for years on vert surfaces with no issues. I spray just don’t go to heavy. I’ve since switched to waterbase as the dry time between coats is just too much and the VOC’s really bad. Now I use general finishes high performance. If oil is a must for you then Arm-r-seal. Nothing imparts the amber hue of waterlox on cherry though (IMO). I now use high performance exclusively unless the client demands an oil finish. It’s so much nicer to clean up as well. I also love being able to put 3 coats on in an afternoon.
