Cherry is a wood used for fine furniture. Strong and tough, cherry has been compared in strength to yellow birch. Prized for its rich color and fine grain, cherry is commonly seen in cabinetry and has a satiny texture. Cherry is known for its warmth and contrast in the wood itself.
With the use of the bench all the stress is removed from the joints and permits longer, more comfortable sitting meditation sessions. All the woods we use are sustainable species that are not listed on any threatened species list. Daily Zen benches are finished with hand-rubbed Danish oil, a non toxic finish. You can use any fine furniture oil to maintain its lustre.
