Brazilian Cherry is a lot less dimensionally stable then they say it is.

It shrinks and swells considerably. Your clients needed to be educated about it and the effects of humidity & wood, or their expectations will never be met. The worst are people that have never had wood floors in any home they have lived in. Their expectations are sky high.
Especially at $30Sf
