Latin name: Prunus serotina
Distribution: Eastern N. America
Description: Freshly cut Cherry has a pale orange / pink hue. Since it is a photosensitive wood, as it gets exposed to light it will change into a darker orange / brown color (35 lb./ ft3).
Working Properties: The grain is straight and stable, which makes it easy to work. It glues well and takes a first class finish. It can be temperamental with stains.
