FSC Cherry Plywood

FSC Hardwood plywood is an appearance-based product manufactured from a natural resource with much variation. Therefore, every panel will be different, although can be argued that this natural variation is what provides each panel with such unique beauty! FSC Cherry Plywood falls right into this very common Hardwood plywood description. It is beautiful, stately, and often, no two panels are alike.

The sapwood of FSC Cherry is light yellow, or even pink color, while the heartwood is brownish with a greenish tone that darkens upon exposure to air to a deep reddish brown. The wood has a mild, aromatic scent, but no characteristic taste. It is of medium density, firm, and strong, with a fine, uniform texture. The grain is generally straight. It takes to screwing and nailing exceptionally well, and it takes on a new and celebrated identity when treated with the proper finish. These qualities are very present also in Cherry Plywood.

Also known as “Black Cherry,” the tree that ultimately produces FSC Cherry Plywood is very much American made. It grows in about twenty states that are situated predominately in the Eastern half of the United States.

This stately veneer is used in the building of fine furniture, interior trim, paneling, cabinetry, and toys.
