    I am thinking of installing Brazilian Cherry on the first floor of my house.
    I can get it for 2.50 s/f.
    So, it is in expensive.
    And it is very hard stuff, so it will resist scratching. 2300 on the janka rating. Oak is 1300 and pine is 900.

    My concern is that it will feel uncomfortable compared to oak.

    Has anyone installed this stuff?
