  • Cut to Size / Planed American Cherry Timber

    The timber is hard, with a fine, straight, close grain, the heartwood varying in colour from reddish-brown to rich red, the narrow sapwood being pinkish. Fine, narrow, brown-coloured pith flecks, and small gum pockets are a common feature of the wood, which weighs about 580 kg/m³ when dried.

    Typically certain species of American hardwood such as Cherry are shipped into the United Kingdom as FAS 1 face or better using the internationaly recognisied NHLA (National Hardwood Lumber Association) grading rules, because they are fruit woods with much smaller trunks, more sapwood, more knots etc.

    FAS 1 face allows for only the best face to be 83% clear of knot and the reverse face 50% clear and sapwood is not considered a defect, especially in Walnut and Cherry.
