Hi everyone.

I finally finished making the cherry stair treads.

These are for my parent’s house.

I know it’s a sacrilege to stain cherry lumber like this, but my mother wanted these to match her new cabinets.

I’ll post pics of the staircase when these are installed this weekend.

I actually think it’s fairly common to stain cherry: Because it changes color so much over time, many people prefer to try to pick a color early. Looking good!
