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 micro-thin 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

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.

    Product as described-shipped quickly

    I haven't used this strip of cherry wood yet but it is a nice quality and, if I can figure out how to do my little project (see "Beginner" above) it will be terrific!
