Hi Terra -
Finally - someone from my neck of the woods!
I live in St. Paul but my shop is in Boardman, WI (hence my user name) just south of New Richmond. Boardman's just a wide spot in the road - 16 houses and 2 bars - I think the 8:1 ratio of houses to bars is a WI state law, from what I can tell. Heck - people in Hudson (8 miles away) sometimes don't know where Boardman's at.
I've been looking for someone in the western WI area for air-dried stuff. Especially the cherry you mentioned. Ever get any red elm?
