The use of cherry wood in woodworking and furniture making.
¶ This is the wood of the fruit tree and while it was used rather more extensively in former years it never has been extensively used except for novelty effects, parquetry, etc., on fine furniture. The wood is close-grain and of very fine texture. It is a hard wood of a pinkish white color.
