American Hardwood

Cherry

Cherry: Cherry grows all over North America up to 40-50 feet high and varies in color. The heartwood of cherry varies from rich red to reddish brown and will darken with age and on exposure to light. In contrast, the sapwood is creamy white. The wood has a fine uniform, straight grain, satiny, smooth texture, and may naturally contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets. Cherry dries fairly rapidly and has a strong tendency to warp and shrink and with medium movement in service. The uses for cherry wood are varied, it is considered by many to be in the same class as mahogany. It is a fine furniture and cabinetry wood, prized for its natural luster and attractive grain.
