Cherry – American

Cherry - American Lumber @ Rare Woods USA

Black Cherry is an important domestic hardwood, long associated with fine furniture and a favorite of many master craftsmen. When freshly cut, the wood has a tan to light brown color with a pink or red tint. The dark reddish-brown (russet) color it exhibits after aging is often imitated through the use of stains on other woods. The sapwood is pale yellow colored. Grains can be straight or irregular; combined with its moderate density, this makes the wood easily workable. The most desired examples are of the curly-figured variety, which can be bold and quite dramatic.

This species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Why We Love This Wood

In addition to furniture crafting, Cherry has been used sporadically in guitar building as it's exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, stability and durability make it ideally suited for guitar neck or body wood. This wood is considered to be one of the most co-operative, user-friendly hardwoods in the world, although it can sometimes be resistant to absorbing a stain. (... but who would want to stain it?).
