American Cherry

Prunus serotina (NE North America)

 

Cherry comes from the Appalachian Region of North America where it has long been used in the manufacture of traditional Shaker style furniture. Cherry has a warm pink-brown colour with paler greenish bands, a distinctive grain figure and occasional dark pitch streaks. The uniform fine grain works to a smooth finish and ages to a mellow richness, adding to the appearance of the fine furniture and joinery to which this timber is admirably suited.
