Cherry - American

The only true reddish coloured hardwood from the USA. Now being used widely throughout Europe for furniture and shopfitting.

Also popular with bedroom and kitchen furniture manufacturers and as a flooring choice because it finishes beautifully. It presents a lovely figured pattern on its face grain.

You must expect some sap colour and gum pockets (inherent with this species).
