I say leave it as is. Who paints cherry anyway? If you want paint, make another, with different wood, have it painted, then compare the two. I am thinking this one will be more popular.

Beautiful! I wouldn't paint it. I love the look of the wood grain.

No paint on that. Pine- yes. Cherry - no.

Boy, that looks good, like the others, I'd hate to see that beautiful wood painted. Just thinking out loud, if you wanted a different shade, what if you layered two different species of wood where the statue was in a slightly different shade of wood? Would be difficult to do, but I bet the experts here have an idea. I would not change anything as nice as it is.

I like this one. It reminds me of when my father was stationed in New York. We went to the Statue Of Liberty and climbed to the crown, the torch had been closed off at that time.

Dan I don't really think very much of your CNC work needs to be painted because of the fine detail you get when they are carved. The shadows they cast make the details very distinctive.

No paint, but if you want to bring out the images better, put the protective finish on. Brush some darker stain, and wipe it off leaving the dark stain in all the texture. It will bring out the detail but not loose the wood grain.
