PENNSYLVANIA CHERRY

About Pennsylvania Cherry Lumber:

The wood has a straight-grain, a fine, uniform, satiny and smooth texture, and naturally may contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets. Cherry is easy to machine, nails and glues well, and when sanded and stained, it produces an excellent, smooth finish. It dries fairly quickly with moderately high shrinkage, but dimensionally is stable after kiln-drying. Cherry is of medium density with good bending properties, has low stiffness, and medium strength and shock resistance.

Cherry is mainly used in fine furniture and cabinet making, moulding and millwork, kitchen cabinets, paneling, flooring, doors, boat interiors, musical instruments, turnings, and carvings.
