i got a whole cherry tree from the sawyer about a week ago, its going to be hard waiting for it to be ready, there is some gob smack beautiful wood waiting, some beautiful crotch…so this project made me really hungry to get to my cherry, its a great story, this man needed the cherry cut down, and wanted it to go to someone who would use it for furniture and the likes, i was the first to call , my wife and i went to see it and knew right away i was going to want it, the tree was a fairly large cherry for alabama, and you will see something great i hope from me with this wood, your piece gives me inspiration…thanks john….i hope things are going well, this economy is down right brutal…but folks seem to be getting along….grizz…
