Cherry kitchen cabinets are very beautiful to behold and is the envy of every visitor. The rich, lustrous, satin finish appearance of these cherry cabinets radiates a glow. These cabinets work fine in any setting, from the traditional to the most modern. Cherry wood holds a distinguished place in history. Since olden times, the Americans used cherry wood for making traditional furniture and cabinets. Cherry wood is the favorite of wood workers because it is very easy to work with hand instruments. The cherry sapwood has a white creamy look. The heartwood ranges from deep red to light red tinged with a brown color and contains color streaks of yellow, pink or green. Tiny knots or holes are common on the surface. When exposed for a long time, the light rays and oxygen in the hardwood interact thereby producing a lustrous and rich hue of color.
