Character / Color:

The American black cherry provides an especially good wood for veneer which is darker than the cherry from Europe. Fine figures can be seen on the tangential surface and attractive stripes on the radial surface, where the fine pith rays appear as light and lustrous comb grain. This wood is preferred in the production of furniture which is distinguished by a balanced and solid shape. The elegantly simple and well-balanced texture of cherry always gives an object a certain timelessness.
