Cherry wood is currently one of the most valuable woods for furniture and high-quality interior design. Due to its noble and decorative character, it is ideal as a basis for veneer, parquet, wall coverings or even jewelry.
The heart of cherry wood is characterized by its reddish-brown coloring with a fine structure. The sapwood, on the other hand, is yellowish-white and therefore clearly different in color from the core. The wood is medium-hard and very durable when dry. Due to the moderate resistance to fungal attack, it should not be used outdoors.
