Our Cut-To-Size American Cherry Timber is a warm red hardwood timber origination from North America. Characterised by its strong composition and straight, close grain, American Cherry offers moderate strength with shock and decay-resistant properties.

This timber wood option is also easy to work with, turning well whilst providing a lustrous finish when polished and treated. American Cherry also machines, glues and nails effectively.

Name: Prunus serotina

With a beautiful finish and figured pattern on the face grain, American cherry is now a popular option for furniture. The inherent sap colour and gum pockets add an extra dimension to this hardwood.

Uses: Panelling, joinery, kitchens and shop fitting, cabinets, furniture, mouldings, musical instruments, turning, carving, kitchen, living room, interior projects

Country of Origin: American Cherry Timber cut-to-size hardwood is derived from Prunus serotina, a deciduous tree commonly found throughout North America, eastern areas of the United States and the Midwest. The trees typically reside in fields or open spaces with lots of sun and moist but well-drained, moderately fertile soil.

Woodshop’s Preferred Finish: Osmo 1101 Extra Thin Wood Wax

Durability: Moderately Durable (10-15 years) Density: 580 (Kg/m³)

Colour(s): Pink with brown hues to reddish-brown or orange to red in colour.

The Timber: Made up of a smart, straight and close grain with a fine, smooth and consistent texture and a medium lustre without treatment. The heartwood and sapwood are very similar but the sapwood tends to have more of a reddish colour whereas the heart has more brown hues. Following time and oxidisation, American Cherry will take on a richer, brown-red colour - an ageing characteristic that many woodworkers find desirable for furniture projects.

Strength: American Cherry offers good levels of strength and shock resistance, making it suitable for a wide range of interior woodworking projects. The heartwood is also highly resistant to decay and its beautiful visual appearance and good strength properties mean it will last a lifetime when used indoors.

Working Qualities: Very easy to work with - American Cherry is favoured among both professionals and DIY-ers for its wonderful turning, finishing and machining qualities. It also responds well to nailing and glueing and can produce a stunning lustre when polished and treated.

Uses: Internal
