When it comes to choosing a timber species for your hardwood project, it’s fair to say that there’s a large amount of options available! If you’re a woodworker looking for a timber species fitting for making beautiful, bespoke furniture or carvings, then cherry might be the perfect match…
Cherry is most suitable for:
Mouldings and millwork
The aesthetics of your timber is incredibly important, particularly when it comes to crafting visual pieces such as fine furniture.
Cherry is easy to machine, nails and glues well and, when sanded and stained, produces an excellent smooth finish. It dries fairly quickly with moderately high shrinkage, but is dimensionally stable after kiln-drying.
