Cherry wood has been favoured traditionally across Europe and America since ages. American furnitures and wooden artefacts were primarily made of cherry wood because the wood is conducive to carving with simple tools and takes any shape the carver wants.
Cherry heartwood can be either reddish or brownish with slight hints of yellow, green or pink sprinkled here and there as well as frequent knots which can be exploited for artistic effects. Heartwood forms as a result of chemical metamorphosis which makes it hard and shiny. Softer sapwood is a shade of creamy white.
Cherry wood is truly versatile when it comes to adorning a traditional kitchen or a modern one. Its durability and superior looks have made it the wood of choice and there is no reason why you should not choose it too.
