Subject:
Staining cherry question

Barry Irby
I generally don't like staining anything and usually don't stain cherry. I try to use wood all from the same tree and avoid sapwood. On this project the thicker leg stock came for a different source and is much lighter/blonder than my 4/4 stock. The sapwood is nearly white where as mine is blond.

So, how to even it out?
