My grandson is building a huge dining table of cherry. He found some stash on Craigslist and we went to look not expecting much. Well, let me tell you about cherry Nirvana!! The guy has had it stickered and stored in a barn loft for years. We bought, for $1/bd.ft.: 2-4”x4.5”x9’, 8-4”x4.5”x5-6’, 5-6/4×9-11”x5-6’, 6-6/4×7-11”x8-9’. Most of it is clear although there is some checking and cracks.

There is still a truckload of lumber there. More cherry, some white oak, red oak and maple. We did not get too nosy because it was about 110* up there. If he still has it in a few weeks, we may buy it all.

The cherry is in my shop and ad I think on of the 4×4.5×9’ hunks is going to stay there just to look at.
