    Cherry From Visits

    Well got the wood cut up today that I received while touring and visiting. The first picture is from Cathy and the second two pictures are from Tony De Masi big log. Both had cracks on the ends so cut of the ends but they won't go to waste as the ends will make some nice smoking wood for the new smoker I picked up on the trip. Anyway hopefully will have some time to do some turning. Tony's big blanks and Cathy's big ones I am hoping to core. I am hoping for 12 bowls from those.

    Thanks guys. Pete I am planning on lidded boxes for those blocks that are 3 x 3 x 11. I just got some hand threading tools so hopefully I want to try threaded lidded boxes. I hope all goes as planned. I watched Mike Mahoney in a demo thread some things. He gave me some pointers so hopefully it will work.

    Thanks Dan. I am hoping so. The wife said I was drooling on the way home everytime I talked about it.

    Bernie,

    When you run low on cherry, come to the UP, I can fix you up.
