American Cherry, Prunus serotina
American cherry is an extremely stable, articulate tonewood the falls comfortably between Maple and Mahogany. Its natural light tan / reddish brown color beautifully darkens with age, and its sapwood is more pale with a light pink tone.

Tonally, American Cherry offers quick attack, good balance, and clear note separation. It avoids the dry, sometimes "thin" sound of Maple and instead offers more a pronounced bass and mid-range, with more complex overtones.

Cherry's fine, sometimes wavy grain works well whether by hand or by machine. Although seldom perfectly quartersawn, it is nevertheless strong, hard, and dimensionally stable.

All WOODSTAX items come with our 100% satisfaction promise and no-hassle returns. If you are unhappy with the wood once you get it, simply return it in its original, unworked condition for a full refund or exchange.
