The only thing I have heard about cherry wood is you have to us lye on it to bring out the color, some people use oven cleaner, because it is lye based.If you buy a 50 lb bag of lye you only need 1 tablespoon to a pint of water, if you use oven cleaner let it foam for 10 min.I am posting a photo of a cherry stock that was done with oven cleaner.

The top gun in the picture is a cherry wood Pecatonica stock. I had it quite a few years, and as it was my first real build, there were many mistakes on my part. Pecatonica builds are not easy if you've never done one. You can change a $1,000 firearm into a $100 wall hanger real easy. Two of the three in the picture were easy component kits. Then I got better with the fourth one, a component kit I bought at Dixon's fair. Then I got tired of the cherry wood stock and ordered a tiger stripe maple replacement stock from Pecatonica. It didn't fit the lock I had from the original build so I had to chisel out and fit the lock to the new stock. People admired both stocks. You just have to remember whichever one you pick you're probably gonna have it a long time. I only have the top pictured gun now, the Pecatonica build.
