Select Cherry from TaylorCraft will be clear of defects, and the inherent color, character marks and grain patterns will be closely inspected and matched to create a more uniform appearance than our Natural grades. White sapwood will not be visible on the face. Select grade is recommended when reduced variation in appearance is desired or when used with clear or lightly stained finishes. General characteristics of Cherry are: elegant hardwood, defined by soft grain patterns and rich tonality. Naturally occurring “marks” include pin knots, mineral streaks, and pitch pockets/gum spots. It is important to note that Cherry will darken with age & exposure to light. Because of this aging process, differences will exist between aged and un-aged products. Product should be covered until finished or hung, or telltale lines will appear where the material is exposed to light.
If you or your customers are not familiar with the species or our grading, we strongly recommend ordering a sample from TaylorCraft to prevent any misunderstanding.
