Description

ABOUT CHERRY WOOD:

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 straight-grain, a fine, uniform, satiny and smooth texture, and naturally may contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets.

WORKING PROPERTIES:

Cherry is easy to machine, nails and glues well, and when sanded and stained, it produces an excellent, smooth  finish. It dries fairly quickly with moderately high shrinkage, but dimensionally is stable after kiln-drying.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES:

Cherry is of medium density with good bending properties, has low stiffness, and medium strength and shock resistance.
