Although cherry accounts for less than 2% of the growing hardwood resource, it is widely available in a full range of specifications and grades as both lumber and veneer.
Cherry is easy to machine. It nails and glues well and when sanded, stained and polished, it produces an excellent smooth finish. It dries fairly quickly with moderate large shrinkage but is dimensional stable after kilning.
On exposure to UV light, cherry products with a natural finish will generally darken in color over time.
