Product Information:

Cherry (Prunus serotina) features heartwood in reddish brown to deep red, with brown flecks, and will naturally darken with age. Cherry is known as being one of the best all-around woods for workability. It is stable, straight-grained, and machines well. Cherry is commonly used in furniture construction and turned items. Cherry has a decent strength-to-weight ratio, though it's not as hard as some other denser domestic hardwoods. This stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension. USA.

  • Reddish brown/deep red color
  • Straight-grained
  • Machines well
  • Great for woodturning
  • Furniture making


  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ¼" of size listed.

    Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

Once you’ve worked it, you’ll understand why: great color, fi ne grain, a wonderful luster, and it even smells good.

    Comments about Cherry 3/4" x 6" x 36" :

    This was a small piece of cherry, and so I had hoped for it to be clear. It was not. It had one clear side, but for the use I had in mind I needed no flaws on both faces. I'll work through it, but it could have been a better piece of wood given the small size and the not small price.
