When finished, it takes on rich, deep red and brown tones with striking dark accents that really resonate with homeowners. Brazilian cherry is a very hard wood that accepts stains and finishes very well, so it makes great flooring! It rates 2350 lbf (pounds per foot) on the Janka hardness scale. Compare that with douglas fir, which rates 660 lbf, or white oak at 1300 lbf, or Brazilian walnut at 3800 lbf (pounds per foot).
