cherry table and uv polyeurathane


Hello ya'll,
I just completed an American Cherry table to match, or get close to my older cherry chairs and side tables. I finished it with the fast drying minwax polyeurathane clear satin. My living room get zero sunlight, as it faces north. I would like it as dark as possible, and I fear the finish may have some UV blocking, though it doesn't advertise as such.
Will it darken much in my lifetime, or should I take it out into the sun and read a book while I rotate it like a rotisserie for a few afternoons?
Thanks... Tor

Well, I guess I had better get it out in the sunlight, I forgot the leaves will be getting zero light. Shoot. I messed this one up. Should have had it out in the light before I finished it. Now its up on the roof of the apartment building for who knows how many days... Seattle.... a week maybe? ... for it to get mostly dark... two weeks? of only the sunny days. (please no jokes, its been very sunny lately)

Fret not. UV is a part of the equation but time and Oxygen filter in too.
I have noticed a significant difference in my cofee table in about a year and it get's little or no direct sun.
