Cherry question

807 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Oregon Woodworker
What is the diffence between just cherry and black cherry? After reading Christian Becksvoort;'s book he says uses black cherry.. I am wanting to see what it looks like myself... Any place that sells or free sample... Most places want you to buy a bundle.. I'm just wanting a maybe 6x6 or somthing around that size... Thanks

I use "brazillian cherry" aka jatoba. Over time it goes burgendy (sp?). Hard as hell with few knots. Machines beautifully with carbide cutters.
