Cherry – Select

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.

Cherry – Natural

Natural Cherry from TaylorCraft will be clear of pronounced defects but will possess inherent characteristics of the species in which only the extremes will be removed. White sapwood may be visible on the face in small amounts. Color and grain, while monitored, will vary more and will not be as uniform in appearance as our Select grade. Natural grade is recommended when natural color and grain variations are desired or acceptable such as when used with medium to dark 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. Sapwood can vary drastically in color but is generally white. 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.

Cherry – Knotty

Knotty Cherry from TaylorCraft will contain natural sound defects and possess all inherent characteristics of the species. Minimal to no color or grain matching is done to preserve strong character and some white sapwood is allowed. Some of the characteristics that will be represented are mineral streaks, natural color variations, grain variations and naturally occurring tight, open and cracked knots. Open knots will be structurally “sound” and will not be see through. The quantity, size, placement and color of these characteristics will vary, and their consistency (or lack of) is not considered cause for replacement. Drawer fronts, applied moldings and small raised door panels may not include knots. Due to the depth of some defects and knots, all panel or veneer options may not be available. 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. Sapwood can vary drastically in color but is generally white. It is important to note that Cherry will darken with age & exposure to light.
