After all the edging was done, I ran over the veneer with 220 grit, then 320 grit. I don’t normally stain wood. I like the natural look and I pick my wood species for the desired look. Plus, cheery will darken all on its own. In a few months, it will darken up quite a bit. I used 3M spray adhesive on the labels to stick them on the cabinet. The little plastic Axiom badge is secured by means of two little pegs. I didn’t want to deal with drilling holes just right in the veneer and broke them off. The adhesive works well enough.

I need order a different grill to match the cherry now. The black looks like crap on the natural cheery.
