    Talking Todays Kill

    Hi All, it's been awhile. I've been working out of town. Just thought I'd post a few pix of some of the cherry I milled today, 4/4 X 10" X 11'. Very pretty stuff.

    Gloating is not nice; Randy! and besides that you and I are the only ones up at this time of the morning. So what are you planning on making with that streaked up cherry? I'm jealous, no envious, jealousy is a sin.

    Hi Randy,
    That is some killer cherry. Good for you.
    The only problem I see in having that wood is that it leads to about a solid month long project to do the wood justice. You better not cut any more unless you just want too .
    Great find.

    I've used a fair bit of American cherry over the last couple of years, but none of it looked like that!

    It just goes to confirm my suspicions that like the French and their wine, you guys keep the good stuff for yourselves!

    It must be great to have you own milling setup and have access to the raw materials that you do. I sure wish that I had more storage space so that I could buy enough of your stuff to make it worthwhile. We need a group of guys around the area that would be willing to order enough to make up a load and split it up.

    Sorry I did not see this sooner Randy, but my home computer threw a rod, so I've been offline for more than a day

    nice wood!!
