Usually I hate phone calls at 7:30 in the morning but when it’s to offer me a free load of cherry it’s worth answering. All of them were stored in a dry horse barn and stickered. These aren’t premium boards having the occasional knot hole or lots of sap wood in a few cases. All of it is rough cut and will need lots on planing but only one seemed to have any real amount of warp. Each layer is about 30” wide with 4-6 boards and all of them easily clean 7ft although a few hit the 9ft length.
Other up side is that some of the stickers that are wider and thicker are made of maple, as the pile moves up to the shop those will move through the planer as well and into cutting boards.
The top boards had bug holes in them and have been set way to the side and will be cut up to remove any material that has any hint of a hole in it. The bottom boards were laid on plywood and had mold in spots, every board was closely inspected for any kind of insect and all are clean.
