I'm going to try my hand at installing some wood (cherry) moulding. The moulding will need to be cut into several sections. Should I cut the moulding first and then stain it or can I get away with staining a section of moulding and then cutting it?

If you are better at painting than that would be second, if you are better at carpentry that would be second...

I typically stain first, since I know my joints will be done well and will not need any putty or filler. Once installed I'll place the finish coat... a painter will disagree with me though.

I would stain first and then touch up any knicks and the cut ends later. It is easier to stain and finish before it is installed.
