Cherry is a finer grained wood graced with mildly visible irregular rings and patterns
of grain, some flecking and character interest around the knots. Cherry has plenty
of attraction and interest, but is not considered a high contrast or high character
hardwood. Some cherry may have a slight contrast between the mildly darker russet,
auburn, red-tan toned heart woods and lighter sap woods. Those famous cherry tones
are often further enhanced with cherry stain. Cherry is also one of the more dimensionally
stable hardwoods available. This makes Cherry a good consideration for installations
where a difficult climate may contribute to less than ideal conditions.
