So was his first picture.


I just finished a 300 bd ft set of kitchen cabinets made from cherry. I've learned to identify some woods based solely on how they smell when they go through the saw. Cherry is one of those woods with a distinct smell.

Welcome Pinwheel---Do you have any good mills with cherry in your neck of the woods?

Cherry is one of my most used woods--I usually buy 200 to 300 BDF at a time---It's a nice predictable wood to work with---

I've got 2 good sources for cherry. One s 15 miles from my house & they deliver. The other is an amish gentleman that also supplies my special order hardwood floors. He's an hour away & I have to go pick it up. He's usually 50 cents to a dollar/bd ft cheaper.

That cherry cabinet job used all my surplus cherry, so now I've got 300' setting in my shop floor waiting to be racked up.

I need a load---and somebody in Des Moines can use some old darkroom equipment I want to get rid of---and I wouldn't mind seeing your new shop----I usually get wood in Michigan--I wouldn't mind going west instead of east----

You just need to crawl in the truck sometime & take a roadtrip to Missouri. While you're here, you can help me setup my new dust collector.

The amish guy I buy wood from is in southern Ia. I can put you in touch with him if you want. His place is on the way to my place from Des Moines.

You better keep the shop cat back while that is in operation.

If there is no finish on that then it's cherry, f there is finish or stain then it's likely maple.
