I'm planning to building my sister-in-law and brother-in-law a cradle for their first child, who will be here June, 2003. I work with oak and poplar, but my relatives are really in to cherry - not the real stuff, just the deep red look. What would you recommend for a wood type and stain to get the "cherry" look? I don't want to use cherry wood, if I don't need to - expensive!!
