Cherry by the Piece-3/4" Thickness
Cherry by the Piece-3/4" Thickness
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!

Lumber Details:
  • 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

Do U have wider widths than 5" ?
Larry H on Aug 22, 2017
Are the advertised dimensions for cherry lumber the same as the actual dimensions and how long is the order delay?
Fred S on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dimensions are exactly as stated and all edges are smooth and square. High quality wood carefully cut. Standard shipping to me in Northern CA same as for any Rockler order ... about 8-10 days. Highly recommend.
Do you sell 60" lengths of the cherry-by-the-piece lumber?
Stephen J on Aug 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, shipping boards of that length can be prohibitively expensive.

Rockler retail stores do carry additional sizes and lengths if there is one close to you.
