We we’ve shipped three large cherry Guitar Habitat™ cabinets this month. Two were stained and dyed to make them the traditional dark cherry you often see in antique furniture. The one is in natural cherry, finished with just clear nitrocellulose lacquer with an undercoat of French polish.
Cherry is a really interesting wood. It’s almost like photo paper. It starts out nearly white, and the longer you leave it in the sun, the darker it gets. In a few years, this one will have darkened to a beautiful patina in it’s new home in Colorado.
