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. Larger blocks are sawn to +/- 1/4" of size listed, smaller blocks +/- 1/8". Spindle stock (1-1/2" - 2") 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.

  • Wood for Carvers - There are many wood species that make for a good carving project, but some are more difficult to work than others.
  • SPOTLIGHT ON CHERRY - Cherry (botanically called “black” cherry, Prunus serotina) has long been ranked second only to walnut by makers of finely crafted furniture. 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 2" x 2" x 30" :

    I have purchased wood from several vendors online. Woodcraft sells Cherry that is about as good as you can buy without being on site to hand pick pieces. There are a few flaws but this is to be expected from Cherry. Will order again.
