Cherry Wood Lumber
Cherry Wood – Cherry Wood Lumber is a light pinkish-brown when freshly cut and develops a rich reddish-brown patina with age, a look frequently imitated with wood stains on other hardwoods. The aging process of Cherry can be accelerated by exposing the wood to direct sunlight. Cherry is a hardwood commonly used for cabinetry, fine furniture, flooring, interior millwork, veneer, turned objects, and small specialty wood items. Cherry wood is easy to work, fine textured, strong and durable.
Workability: Cherry Wood Lumber is one of the best all-around woods for workability. It is stable, straight-grained, and machines well. Difficulties may arise when the wood is being stained, as it can give blotchy results. Using a sanding sealer prior to staining or using a gel-based stain is recommended. Sapwood is common and may contribute to a high wastage factor.
