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.

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 .

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
