Details

Cherry is a beautiful and rich wood with excellent machining properties and a tight grain structure. Fresh milled Cherry heartwood will be pinkish but will darken to a richer reddish brown with oxidation and exposure to light. Durable yet beautiful, Cherry is the ideal wood for a classic and luxurious look.

Lumber is a living product, responding to its environment as a tree does to its forest. Humidity, age, area and cut will slightly alter the appearance of the lumber product. The product images on this page are a sample of this species, not an exact depiction of the product you will receive.

Why Prime Plain Sawn 90-70 Cherry?

  • Takes finishing well
  • Easily workable and glues easily
  • High heartwood content for rich red look
  • Domestically harvested and abundant
  • Ideal for doors, cabinetry, millwork or furniture

Benefits of Plain Sawn Lumber:

Cutting tangentially through the tree’s growth rings, Plain Sawn Cherry utilizes the entire log while minimizing waste. The result is a grain pattern that displays a very traditional, dramatic cathedral pattern.

Colour/Appearance:

Cherry has creamy white sapwood contrasted against a reddish-brown heartwood. Often, the wood will have darker streaks or specks of subtle black colours that can evolve and strengthen over time. Cherry typically has a straight grain with fine texture and golden luster. Cherry wood darkens over time to a richer colour especially when there is natural light exposure. Cherry continues to be the classic and elegant choice for American woodworkers and designers with its rich and colorful appearance.

Contact your Sales or Specifications Representative for further information on specific varieties available and best suited for your project.

Workability:

Cherry is an exceptionally workable hardwood lumber. It glues and finishes well. Shrinkage and swelling are minimized on account of its dimensional stability. Some woodworkers report difficulty staining Cherry, and as such sanding is suggested.

Sustainability:

Cherry trees are native to North America and are widely dispersed throughout the Eastern half of the continent. In the United States, Cherry represents 3% of standing hardwood timber and is the 11th most populous hardwood species behind species like oak maple poplar and birch. Harvest rates versus growth rates based on US Forest Service census numbers show that 52% more Cherry is growing annually than is being harvested. Cherry is a sustainably harvested and abundant timber.

We recognize the importance of ethically harvested lumber. As our most valuable resource, sustainably harvested forests increase the rate of carbon sequestration and significantly cut carbon emissions. Wood is a renewable and sustainable material for the built environment, requiring less energy than alternatives like concrete or steel. From harvesting to recycling, lumber is the most carbon-efficient choice for building materials. Wood is of the few elements that can increase sustainability in a building’s life cycle, reduce waste, and create positive biophilic health benefits. Increasingly, architects and designers are calling for a return to wood as the prominent basic building material.

As an early adopter of FSC®, we recognize the importance of sustainably harvested lumber. FSC® Certified lumber is available upon request. Contact your Sales or Specifications Representative for more information.
