Consequently, can you stain pine to look like cherry?
Some types of wood, like pine, cherry, birch and maple, are notoriously difficult to stain. A board that has a nice, attractive grain pattern can end up with dark, splotchy areas after you apply the stain. But the best test is to apply stain to a sample of the wood you're using.

Accordingly, what is the best stain for cherry wood?
At first, linseed and tung oil finishes give cherry a deeper, richer appearance than film-forming finishes like shellac, lacquer and polyurethane. But after a year or so, they'll all look pretty much the same. If you want to give cherry a dark color right away, don't use oil stain.
Does cherry wood stain well?
Cherry is a favored wood among furniture builders for its deep richness and for the color that only seems to improve with age. It sands to a very smooth finish relatively easily and takes stain to adjust the color quite well. Well-cured cherry can be as strong as maple and easier to work with than oak.
