Our Rough Sawn Cherry Timber is sourced from the very best sawmills in America. The timber is a prime grade although may contain some small knots. There can be a marked colour variation from reddish brown to creamy pink with some paler sapwood. The boards are carefully stored in our heated and acclimatised factory giving an average moisture content of between 9-11%.
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.
Moderately durable, the heartwood is very resistant to decay.
Furniture, cabinetmaking, quality joinery, turning, carving, musical instruments including pianos and violin bows and decorative veneers.
