I always use Waterlox tung oil varnish on cherry projects. IT's easy to
wipe on, it is absolutely beautiful and it's very durable. Not as durable
as poly, but I like how it brings out the patina better than the poly seems
to. Just make sure you wipe off the excess.
Jeff Jewitt wrote an article for FWW couple of years ago about Sherwin
Williams Fast Dry Oil Varnish applied with Viva paper towel. IIRC
varnish and naptha 1:1 and wipe on with quarter folded towel. Three
coats in a day. Use gloss instead of satin to avoid stripes. Works
great. www.homesteadfinishing.com used to have search capability but
I haven't looked since the site has been redone.
