trying to match stained/glazed cherry kitchen cabinets with another stained wood
We have brand new cherry kitchen cabinets. They are stained and glazed a medium brown coffee-like color. We were told that despite cherry’s tendency to change colors, the finishing on the cabinets would keep them pretty much the same as they are now.
We are now adding a pantry and we want the doors to be similar in color to the cabinets. I’m nervous about getting cherry doors, which I’ve heard are hard to stain and will probably darken over time. What other wood is similar to cherry grain, but would be easier to stain and hold the color?
