Cherry is a very warm wood that will darken a bit as it gets more seasoned. The standard natural color of newly cut cherry wood is a salmon color but this color will begin to darken gradually until its natural and rich luster shines through. The visually captivating nature of mature cherry wood is why it is used frequently for hardwood flooring, kitchen countertops, cabinets, gun stocks, guitar bodies, drum sets, and other woodworking projects as well.
As the wood matures, it will also harden even further and self heal. Cherry wood has a Janka hardness rating between 950 lbf (4,200 N) and 995 lbf (4,430 N) depending on whether it is black or brazilian cherry. However, with time, this number will increase further and any grooves made by your knives on your board will heal naturally likewise. This is why this material is prized in the restaurant world as it serves as a long-lasting and highly cost-effective cutting board material.
Cherry wood is also sustainable and eco-friendly as well. Its production takes little to no effort and overhead and it can be manufactured and used for all kinds of projects. It is even used as an alternative to more rare dark red woods as well. This is why it is a great choice for both style and function in both the kitchen and in the decor of your modern home.
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
