American cherry is a rare reclaimed wood, as its traditionally a valued furniture choice. You’re not likely to find a hewn cherry timber framing a old barn, industrial building, or house. It comes in small quantities today from agricultural crating, where ‘lower grades’ and sizes apparently divert the boards to these utility uses. The warm fine grained cherry grain and figure features nail hole patterns that evoke its construction. The original surface maintains a circular saw mark pattern which would seem an expendable layer, given the premium hardwood below. But the surface emirates some of the cherry tones, making it a candidate for skip planed surfaces that retain a degree of that texture.
