CHERRY, BLACK

(H)

Extremely stable when it comes to checking and warp­ing, and exceptionally beautiful, black cherry is one of North America’s finest cabinet woods. However, there is a pronounced variance in color between its sapwood and heartwood, which can sometimes be problematic.

If the two are used side-by-side, finished work may dis­play a discrepancy in color, which will intensify as the wood ages. A good portion of black cherry wood con­tains gum deposits throughout. Although this does not significantly affect the lumber, it shows on veneers; logs with excessive gum are avoided for veneers.

Other names: American cherry, rum cherry, whiskey cherry, wild cherry, fruitwood.

Sources: Canada, U. S.A.

Characteristics: Fine grain; smooth texture; reddish brown to deep red heartwood.

Uses: Furniture, turning, carving, joinery, musical instruments, boat interiors and decorative veneers. Workability: Very good; blunts cutting edges moderate­ly; good bending properties.

Finishing: Accepts finishes well.
