Cherry – Gummy Grade

Wood Species / Grade Description

Weight: 2.264 Lb/Sq. Ft (Based on 3/4″ thickness)

This is the recommended grade to select if you desire a product that purposely includes pitch pockets distributed throughout the product. Natural characteristic such as sap will be monitored under closer quality guidelines than our Natural/Standard grade. Pin knots are allowed on the face and in profiled areas of the product.

We recommend a Natural/Clear Coat (no stain) whenever using this species so that the gummy character does not get masked over by the stain color. If a stain color is required, we highly recommend a light colored “Spray No Wipe” stain process, not a Wiping stain process when using this species. Occasional worm holes are allowed.

Special Note About Photosensitive Darkening

Due to the natural photosensitive darkening process that occurs with Cherry, Lyptus, Mahogany and Sapele, we advise that you finish these products immediately upon receiving.

If a color variation transpires, simply exposing the product to direct natural sunlight will help to result in a more even shading. Traces of shadowing (darkening) may be visible, and considered acceptable, on the back sides of product.

Disclaimer for Color

Actual product color and detail may vary due to individual computer preferences and monitor settings. We highly recommend ordering an actual product sample of the species and stain color to eliminate any confusion.
