Cherry wood cabinets have long been a sought-after kitchen design feature. They appeal to those who prize both the look and the other many fine features this attractive hardwood brings to their cabinetry. To understand why they’re so highly valued, we should first examine the qualities of cherry wood itself.
Cherry’s Appealing Features
Cherry wood is a popular choice for many furniture makers and other woodworking professionals. Carpenters commonly use this fine hardwood for kitchen cabinets.
A trait of cherry wood is that it dramatically changes color over time. This is one of its more appealing characteristics.
Although there are, of course, variations among cherry wood sourced from different trees, harvested cherry wood often starts out a golden color and gradually darkens to appear more reddish-brown over time. (This mature color is what many people think of when they imagine cherry wood cabinets in their kitchens.)
Why does cherry wood darken over time? It’s likely because of exposure to UV light and to the air. This causes chemical changes to take place in the wood itself.
As for its workability, carpenters like cherry wood because it is flexible but also durable and has a smooth finish. Cherry is a hardwood whose resistance to dents and scratches is stronger than that of other commonly-used woods such as cedar and birch.
Cherry Wood Cabinets and Refacing
