A member of the rose family, cherry trees can nevertheless grow to 80 feet.
Prized as a wood for furniture and cabinetry, this species has a fine, uniform, straight grain
and satiny smooth texture. Cherry is also lighter in weight than many species, making it a
convenient choice for items that will be moved around often. When given a natural finish, the
color of cherry wood changes with time, moving from a light creamy color to a rich reddish-
orange. Most of our pieces can also be made in rustic cherry, which shares the above features
of cherry, but has a more rustic look due to pits, knots, and small cracks in the wood.
