Though Cherry has many species, the most popular and common source of commercial cherry lumber is the American Black Cherry tree, which has a reddish-brown heartwood and a smooth grain. Cherry timber has medium hardness and density and good workability and stability. It responds well to steam bending and is used in many applications ranging from furniture and flooring to interior joinery.

The black cherry heartwood color ranges from light pinkish brown to reddish brown depending on the age. It has a straight grain and a fine and even texture with good natural lustre. Figured pieces often exhibit curly grain patterns. Black Cherry is an extremely durable wood in terms of resistance to decay but might be susceptible to some insects.
