I'm planning on building a cabinet made of cherry. I was planning on using 3/4" cherry plywood until I saw the price. A friend said he had recently read an article (maybe in FWW) that said you can stain birch or maple (he couldn't remember which is was) to closely resemble cherry. I've searched recent FWW back issues for the article but can't find it.
Does anyone know where the article was printed? Better yet, does anyone have an opinion on what plywood/stain combination to best imitate cherry?
