Overview

A long time favorite for its rich color and excellent workability, Cherry continues to gain popularity for use in fine furniture and cabinets. The wood leaves the sawmill with a pinkish, rosy tone, and continues to darken over years to a deep, lustrous red. The narrow sapwood has a creamy color, similar to Hard Maple. Cherry is easily worked with hand tools and takes an excellent finish and polish. All boards are machined S4S, and are planed to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses, relieving your planer of excess work. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, mouldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!

  • Distribution: As many as five varieties of Black cherry are reported to thrive throughout North America.
  • Tree: Attains heights of about 100 feet (30 m) Average tree grows to about 80 feet (24 m) in height, and produces a tall trunk, about 24 inches (60 cm) in diameter. Cherry trees are usually large enough to harvest after 35 to 40 years. Full height is attained in about 100 years.
  • Light & Air-Induced Changes: Black cherry is very sensitive to UV light, which causes it to darken over time. UV light inhibitors in coatings can be used to prevent color change.
  • Grain: Fine grain. Material with dark wavy streaks are frequent. Quartersawn lumber has a shimmery appearance.
  • Texture: Fine and uniform. The wood often has narrow brown pith flecks and small gum pockets.
  • Luster: Rich and satiny.
  • Odor: Emits a fruity aroma when cut.
  • Steam Bending: Good. Often compared to Beech and Ash.
