A Closer Look at Sustainable Wild Black Cherry

Wild Black Cherry is a sustainable timber we rescue from regions being developed and woods which have sustained damage from storms and other acts of nature. Finchley Floor Sanding is breathing fresh life into beautiful wood that otherwise would be destroyed or sold for pennies on the dollar to mills not practicing sustainable.

Our Wild Black Cherry has more mineral and figure streaking than cherry. Some key features of Wild Black Cherry include:

  • Deep pink to rich reddish brown tones
  • A mix of arching grain designs
  • Some vitamin streaking and ample burled or lacy grain.
  • 98--100 percent heart confront
  • Rare knots of less than 11/2"
  • 950 on the Janka hardness scale; comparable to walnut
