We can put any stain on any type of wood, so your options are limitless. Cherry wood will give a pinkish undertone to lighter stains because its natural color shows through. Maple is the most neutral type of wood, and takes stains well and evenly. Once you place an order, we will send you samples for free and you can make you selections after your place in the production queue is secured. But, if you prefer to select your stains before placing an order, click the link below to order you samples. In any case, whatever you spend on samples will be credited towards your purchase.
