I've just refinished what I thought was a cherry table. The top has two 14"
pieces with typical cherry looking colors, only it has a 6" green looking
band running through it. The legs,after sanding revealed this same green
color. Is this typical of old cherry, table is around 60 or more years old.
Thanks for info.
First, this is not typical of cherry furniture. Pieces with off colors
probably would have been discarded or used somewhere less visible.
You don't say what the original finish is. Poplar is known for the green
streaks, so its mainly used in painted furniture. There are more woods than
you can imagine, and 60 years ago there were a lot more local manufacturers
who used locally grown woods, so it could be something other than poplar,
but it would be my first guess.
