Also called African cherry, Makore shares the light pink to deep red coloring, dark growth lines, and small pores common to cherry. In architectural installations, it has the added benefit of availability in large sizes not found in American cherry. Cut on the quarter, Makore shows a contrasting stripe that may be plain or crossed with a variety of decorative figures. Flat cut, it bears the distinctive cathedral grain pattern.
