Cherry, European

Also known as: Wild Cherry

Botanical Name: Prunus avium

Origin: Europe, West Asia, North Africa

Description: A beautiful, lustrous veneer, flat sliced from logs that are generally smaller in diameter than American Cherry. Colour can be variable from pinky yellow to light red-brown, sometimes with a slight green tinge. The colour warms and improves with time and the logs generally have more individual character than their American cousins. Occasional figured logs are found, usually displaying a pretty mottle or fiddleback.
