Cherry Wood

Prunus Serotina


With a warm natural color that deepens with age and a rich, smooth grain, it is easy to see why cherry wood has been a favorite of furniture crafters for thousands of years.

Cherry wood has good resistance to decay and moderate shock resistance, making it a good choice for dice boxes and towers.
