I have cherry in my recent build. It's nice wood to work, very hard, but it's not so hard that it's impossible to form. It's pretty much pink in color, but I've read that if you expose it to UV light it turns brown. A friend of mine said it turns back if it stays out of the sunlight, I don't think that's true based on what I've read, but curious if anyone has experience? I would rather that it was brown, so I'll be exposing it to UV once I get it all put together. I presume that if I expose it and then sand it, it will go back to pink. I guess I'm looking for any experience with exposing wood to UV expressly to change its color.
