Vintage cherry is finished with a soft, mellowing stain that gives the same look as wood that has aged for a dozen years.
Cherry is a straight grained hardwood with a very uniform texture and a rich luster. Its heartwood is light to dark reddish brown. Cherry darkens gradually with age and sunlight, talking on more deep red and brown coloration. This change in color is substantial. Its species name is Prunus Serotina. Its Janka rating (hardness and resistance to scrapes, gouges and cuts) is 950.
