    Hello. I used to be in these forums a lot many years ago but got away from woodworking. I'm back to working on projects now. My dilemma is that I am making a cherry "buffet" counter for the dining room. I purchased a turned leg that is very nice, and built a cabinet using cherry plywood, and...

    I have a beautiful cherry dining table that was originally varnished but the top got scratched. I stripped and sanded it and it now looks great with two coats of Danish Oil. I would like to put a harder finish on it because I don't want it to scratch easily but am not sure about what to use. I...

I want to make these a dark cherry red color. So I'm looking for a colored finish that I can apply to...

    Hi, I am new to this site (actually this is my first post). I am looking for some advice on what is the best way to cut a couple of burls I have. They were cut earlier today and they were on a dead standing tree. The outsides are very rotten, but after about an inch, it becomes hard wood again...

    My kitchen has these great cherry cabinets but they are showing their age in spots. I posted some pics of some dings and scuffs here and there. There doesn't seem to be any major repairs needed just touching up the finish. Any suggestions? Wasn't sure how much sanding and refinishing would be...

    I have about 1500 bf of black and wild cherry that I cut off my property and had milled 13 months ago. I have it stickered and stacked in a dry pole barn. Now what? Do I need to have it kiln dried also? I read a little on the forum re plans for a home built kiln. Does it get lumber to a 6%...

    Alright i just remembered that on my land I have a cherry tree that is 4 ft wide chest-high. I know this because I held a 4 ft pry bar that i happened to have up to it a couple years ago about it was a little wider than the bar. Is this tree worth something in timber? I have seen where some...

    Cherry Lectern; a work in progress I recently got some breathing room to just build something and I wanted to give my pastor a lectern. He currently teaches from a music stand. I have an incredible overflow of cherry and this is what I am building and how it's progressing.

    This is my first post, so bear with me. I just recently came across a windfall of cherry and built a small shelf/cabinet for over our half-bath toilet. Originally I was going to put a door on it, but it's really too shallow for a door and to be able to use it for anything. I hope the pics load...
