Also Cherry has a distinctive smell to the bark, just taste/smell the inside bark a bit.  Once you learn that you'll never mistake -it is an organic cyanide sort.  Bark also has little white oval dots all over it.  Helps to tell a young sherry from a persimmon.

Not sure if this works but I've heard that soaking the wood down with RV antifreeze containing propylene glycol helps to control checking and it also works to kill mold and fungus. I still haven't tried it for myself but plan to .
