Description

Details

Our Planed All Round American Cherry has a heartwood that can vary in colour from reddish brown to either deep red or a lighter red-brown. It normally has brown flecks and small gum pockets. There can be marked colour variation between boards. The narrow sapwood is whitish to reddish brown, sometimes tending to creamy pink. American cherry has a fine texture and a rich satiny lustre and can be found with dark wavy streaks.

Properties
Medium strength and resistance to shock loads. It works well with hand and machine tools, and glues, nails, screws and polishes well. American cherry turns, planes and moulds well. Exposure to ultraviolet light can change the wood to a mahogany colour.

Durability
Moderately durable, the heartwood is very resistant to decay.

Typical Uses
Furniture, cabinetmaking, quality joinery, turning, carving, musical instruments including pianos and violin bows and decorative veneers.

Fine wood
Ok I am not any sort of DIY person. In addition to other things, my wife calls me half-a-job because she has seen my skills (or lack thereof!) first hand over some years. I have a hobby of plastic modelling and wanted to build some quality plinths for my battleships and so on. An online search led me to BH and what a wonderful place. The Satnav dumped me on a nearby dual-carriageway but after a bit of wandering I found it. People are friendly and helpful and quality of the woods, I bought oak and cherry, is second to none. The cherry came together beautifully - I never thought I would say those words. It glued side by side nicely, then after sufficient curing time it machined with my little router which of course terrifies me as I cling on for grim death and then sanded down nicely. Well, it doesn't look half bad. Of course, starting with some quality material has helped and next I will be trying the oak and hopefully making a return trip at the end of summer for some maple. Many thanks and happy woodworking
