There is nothing quite like cherry wood, which has been used for centuries in fine furniture.
Noted for the beauty of its irregular, straight grain and its soft reddish brown color, cherry furniture is elegant and tasteful. Like a good wine or a warm fireplace on a cold winter's night, lustrous cherry wood furniture is one of the finer things in life.
Cherry is often used in classic American furniture styles such as Shaker or Mission furniture. It is often used in more elegant styles as well, such as Queen Anne furniture.
Cherry wood finishes nicely. Stain often brings out the irregularities within the grain, which is part of the natural beauty of cherry wood furniture. Typically cherry furniture is finished with a natural or dark stain. A natural stain tends to bring out the soft red tones, while a dark stain lends itself to a deeper, more elegant look. It should be noted that cherry wood naturally darkens over time, which makes it very difficult to match stains on new and old woods. Cherry furniture also darkens when exposed to sunlight, which is why it is typically wrapped in black plastic as it sits in our Amish wood shops, and often will arrive at your door in the same black plastic.
Cherry wood typically features small gum pockets. While some people see these as imperfections in the wood, others recognize that these pockets add to the unique beauty and character that is only found in natural fibers. The Amish craftsmen who build our solid cherry wood furniture at DutchCrafters typically select wood that has a minimum frequency of pockets, then fill the pockets with a resin as is typically done with cherry wood furniture. This leaves the distinct characteristic of the pockets visible in the furniture, but makes so that they feel smooth to the touch - blending in nicely with the wood. Some of our wood shops offer a premium grade of cherry wood without the pockets, but this is generally at a considerable up-charge.
Cherry is an excellent hardwood for furniture. It is light, stiff and moderately hard. It offers excellent resistance and is therefore often used in floors as well. Many of our customers have chosen cherry wood for dining room tables and chairs. Cherry accent tables are very popular in living rooms. Our cherry bedroom sets are also extremely popular.
