What Color Is Cherry Wood

What color is cherry wood? That is a really good question, especially since less expensive woods such as pine are often stained to resemble cherry. Therefore, the table that you always thought was cherry wood might have actually been plain pine with a cherry colored stain on it. So what color is cherry, for real? That depends on what part of the tree it comes from. The heartwood is a rich, warm reddish brown. Natural cherry wood can have small imperfections, such as resin pockets and brown pith fleck. The sapwood is a creamy white. Both will darken with age. The result is a rich, warm-toned wood that can be made into beautiful table tops or veneer for lesser woods. By contrast, a cherry colored stain can give ordinary pine or fire a warm color tone, but it will not introduce the rich side-by-side color changes inherent in the real wood. Real cherry wood is beautiful stuff, so it’s no wonder people might want to make other woods look similar to it. But now that you know, you will be able to judge for yourself whether a chair or table is made from real cherry wood or whether it’s a lesser wood that has been stained to make it look like cherry. Both choices can make beautiful furniture, and the stained pine or fur can have interesting wood grain patterns. Your awareness of the difference, however, can help when you are looking for that “just right” furniture piece to complete a room’s furnishings. Cherry is a hardwood that can be used to make many different beautiful things. It’s often prized as bedroom suites or to make formal dining tables. It does a good job as a load-bearing wood, so it’s also useful when making chairs or benches. Finally, with its interesting patterns and imperfections, it’s a wonderful wood to use to create artworks that depend on an interesting wood grain.
