Our Cherry worktops in are available in 60mm stave widths. The stave size refers to the width of the smaller individual lengths of timber which make up the worktop. Our Cherry worktops are 40mm thick.
A dense, fine, even texture
North American Cherry is a dense wood with a close grain and a fine, even texture. The truly amazing thing about cherry is its depth. The colour can deepen from both oiling and exposure to light, and has distintive and beautiful gold and salmonish-pink highlights throughout. When it has been sanded, cherry can develop almost a glass-like finish.
Top grade selected timber
Black Cherry is an ideal work surface for a kitchen where you want to add a splash of colour. This compact wood is incredibly hard wearing with a stunning grain pattern with dispersed highlights that denote its lighter properties, making it one of the most interesting timbers in the world.
The Finest Consistancy
It is obvious from the photographs that we only use furniture grade Cherry, but what may not be so clear is just how specific we are when we select our timber. Cherry is not only graded for knots, defects and sap wood, but in the upper grades – i.e. furniture grades – it is also graded for colour, gum pockets, pith marks and general consistency. The Cherry timber we use is called 95/50, which means the top surface must be at least 95 % red (as opposed to cream) and the underside at least 50 %. We also specify a limit on gum pockets, pith marks, and pay particular attention to a consistent grain.
Ribbons of Gold and Salmon Pink Depth
Our North American Super Stave Cherry is an amazing worktop. The photographs simply don’t do Cherry justice, as the ribbons of gold and salmon pink and the incredible depth of the wood just can’t be conveyed in a picture. Constructed of the finest furniture grade wood from New York State, our Cherry Super Stave worktops are the premium of Cherry Worktops.
An alternative to an oiled finish is our extremely hard wearing, low maintenance nano-coating treatment.
