The Appalachian region of the United States produces beautiful Cherry wood, it is a domestic hardwood lumber is known for its beautiful, rich color and good working properties. Cherry is chosen for its fine uniform texture, has straight grain and is reddish-brown in color with the occasional appearance of gum spots. The heartwood is particularly durable and has good resistance to decay. The warm tones and subtle grain pattern of Cherry wood make it an excellent interior wood for doors, windows, mouldings, and, especially, furniture. The predictable movement of properly dried Cherry lumber and the ease with which it can be worked have made the species a staple material in many projects.
Many people love Cherry wood for its color, but rough sawn Cherry lumber is a much lighter pink than what most expect. Today, many Cherry finishes are much deeper browns and reds, and this can cause some confusion, but over time with UV exposure and oxidation, the color to deepens into a beautiful brownish-red. Some people choose to expose their Cherry lumber to the sun to speed up this process, while others rely upon dye and/or stains to achieve the deep red color. This "break in" period is something of which everyone should be aware, especially when doing restoration work to match existing trim or furniture.
