American Cherry wood (Prunus serotina) is straight grained with a fine, uniform texture. Its contrasting colour ranges from creamy white to pinkish brown to a deep red. The slats have marked colour contrasts. The colour change is very pronounced, becoming a rich reddish brown. This wood has a Janka hardness rating of 950.The Solid wood boards including the finishing stages, such as sanding and the finishing, are entirely factory performed under ideal conditions. These pre-varnished boards are ready to be used immediately following their installation. Each board consists entirely of 3/4” thick solid wood; there is, therefore, no gluing or laminating required.
