The heartwood of cherry varies from rich red to reddish brown and will darken with age and exposure to light. In contrast, the sapwood is creamy white. The wood has a fine uniform, straight grain, satiny, smooth texture, and may naturally contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets.
Cherry is easy to machine, nails and glues well and when sanded and stained, it produces an excellent smooth finish. It dries fairly quickly with moderately high shrinkage, but is dimensionally stable after kiln-drying.
The wood is of medium density with good bending properties, it has low stiffness and medium strength and shock resistance.

MH - Metro D.C. developer - Country Cherry
“These were about the best floors that I have installed. After having the wood stacked in the garage for 4 weeks then in the house for 2 weeks, there wasn't one board that had warped. They fit together with ease. They rest of my homes will have Timberknee hardwoods… to get the floor pre-sanded is well worth the money. Hope to be ordering more flooring soon.”

MS, Montrose CO, Country Cherry
“Our floor is gorgeous! We are totally delighted with it. We installed ourselves without a glitch and used the tung oil, Waterlox to finish which also was super easy… and lots of super long pieces. We had enough left over to do the upstairs hall and part of a bonus room, Wow! I can't honestly think of anything to (improve upon)! We would love to show it off to you if you want some pictures. Thanks for all your help.”
