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.

In case of any dysfunction seek professional help and be careful not to damage the cabinet with tools.
