    do you think this is cherry?

    I found 3 pieces of 5/4 piled at the bottom of the ash and oak.
    I purchased this lumber 3 years ago and was told there was no cherry in the lot.
    first pic, its the middle board, the bottom and top boards are cherry.
    2nd pic, it looks like cherry sapwood, just not sure.
    3rd pic, thats the end of the board, bottom board, top board is cherry.
    I believe its cherry, just not 100% sure.(all of the boards I got back then that I think is cherry were planed nicely)
    any guesses?
    I wanna start milling some wood for my writing desk, figured Im a week ahead of schedule, maybe glue up the legs and top this week.

    the pin knots and grain structure looks like cherry to me as well.. it certainly will go with other cherry board from what i can see from here allen..the smell should help you determine its identity as well.. cherry will smell sweet if fresh cut..

    Has anybody suggested cherry?

    I agree with you and the others, Allen.

    Looks like cherry to me too.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
