Cherry Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring

Jewett Farms + Co’s Cherry hardwood flooring features color options ranging from the rich red to reddish brown of the heartwood planks to the beautiful creamy white of a sapwood board. The darker heartwood planks will darken with age and on exposure to light providing a beautiful final product.

Cherry hardwood flooring has a fine uniform, straight grain, satiny, smooth texture. The wood may naturally contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets adding to its character as a finished flooring product. Cherry hardwood flooring planks are of medium density with good bending properties. The planks have low stiffness and medium strength and shock resistance.

Jewett Farms + Co offer both select and character grade Cherry hardwood floors as well as several cut options (plainsawn, riftsawn and quartersawn) from our New England headquarters. When the planks are sanded and stained Cherry hardwood produces an excellent smooth finish. It also dries fairly quickly with moderately high shrinkage, but is dimensionally stable after kiln-drying.

New Hardwood Flooring Options

Select Grade Flooring

Select grade flooring planks have a strong uniformity of color and pattern; each plank will blend well with its neighbor. Natural color and grain pattern come through to show the woods specific characteristics but the planks will lack any obvious blemishes or defects. Select grade is a combination of sapwood and heartwood that shows some knots, streaks and open grain patterning such as swirls and burls.

Character Grade Flooring

Character grade flooring planks show more of the natural characteristics of the wood such as knots and color variations. A character grade floor will have a more varied appearance from plank to plank and will include light and dark colors, knots, streaks and wormholes. The finished look is more natural and less uniform than a select grade floor.

Sawing and Cutting Options

All of our wide plank flooring have multiple sawing options available. Choose from Plain Sawn, Quarter Sawn and Rift Sawn.
