Sawn Prime American Cherry (per cubic foot)
Our Rough Sawn American Cherry Timber is supplied by the cubic foot in full sized boards. The boards are supplied in random widths, typically between 90mm and 150mm, depending on stock availability. The plank lengths tend to be around 2.4 metres to 3 metres, but again may vary due to stock availability.
If you require timber in specific widths or with a fully planed finish, we would recommend our planed all round cherry timber.
Please Note: It is to be expected that the sawn boards will display watermarking due to the kiln drying process. This completely natural phenomenon occurs as the water dries out from the timber. This natural surface marking, along with any others marks, will be removed when you plane and/or sand the boards.
Guide to Cubic Foot Calculation:
An average 3m x 5" x 1" board equates to 0.35 cubic foot
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.
