At Vermont Woods Studios, solid cherry furniture has always been our specialty.  Although most of our craftspeople routinely work in walnut, maple and oak too, cherry continues to be the favorite wood among our customers.  And many are specifically looking for all solid cherry wood, rather than cherry with veneers.

For those customers I thought it might be helpful to compile a current list of some of our most popular collections we offer in solid cherry wood.

Each of these collections is handmade here in VT with solid wood throughout (except the backs of some case goods*).  Sometimes our photos show the furniture in walnut or maple, but you can use the drop down menus to select cherry wood.  Details regarding how these furniture sets are built can be found on our Construction Details pages where you’ll find specifics on joinery, drawer slides, hardware options, premium wood selection, finishing methods, etc.

Tomorrow, I’ll post about cherry furniture that incorporates veneers.  Got questions?  Give us a call or post them on our Facebook.

 *  The backs of case goods in some of these collections are made of furniture grade plywood.  This choice is based on the stability of plywood, versus solid woods which expand and contract with varying humidity levels.  There are many structural and design details involved in a craftsman’s decision to use solid wood versus plywood.  Please check our Construction Details pages for specifics.

Natural Cherry wood furniture is a favorite among our customers and people are always asking where the wood comes from.

We source as much wood as we can locally, preferably right here in Vermont. But cherry wood isn’t a big component of the Green Mountain Forest.

There are a few cherry trees here and there across Vermont, but Pennsylvania is really the Cherry Capitol of the world and that’s where we get most of our cherry wood. It is arguably the finest cherry wood on earth and is prized for its lovely red color, grain and luster.

At Vermont Woods Studios we feel it’s important to provide detailed information about where your furniture comes from.  We want customers to know that our wood is all sustainably harvested and that forest conservation is a fundamental part of our mission.

Fortunately for us, in 1995 the state of Pennsylvania had the foresight to protect and preserve a great deal of their cherry wood resources.  They committed to maintaining the state forest system sustainably and began green certifying it, by the Forest Stewardship Council, FSC. FSC is considered the gold standard in third party certifications of forests so we can be confident that the forests providing our cherry wood will be around to enjoy for many generations… just like our cherry wood furniture.
