Like cherry, apricot darkens over time, however, thorough treatment of the freshly sanded and surfaced boards with a top-coat polymer
, apricot kernel oil or a beeswax finish preserves the natural orange color indefinitely. This wood was cut from fruit orchards in and near Corrales New Mexico and has been air-dried and seasoned for over three years in an arid climate.
