I’m with you. Are you referring to any particuliar piece of cherry or cherry pie. I love them both.

I do. And I agree with Karson as well. Both are my personal favorites.

I knew a girl named Sheri, but she said it’s pronounced like Cherry.

I don’t know enough about various woods but am trying to learn more. Have been collecting, reading and studying a number of books on the vast and wonderful world of trees and wood; most certainly a fascinating subject.

We have a lone cherry tree on our property. It’s thin and heavily shaded and dwarfed under a canopy of soaring pin oaks and what we call in New Jersey, swamp maple.

From limited experience, from what I’ve seen, cherry comes in a wide variety of color and grain. An old, thick milled slab bought years ago and still undecided what to do with it, looks quite plain, but sand the surface and it explodes with tight grain and warm color. It looks like you could live with it forever, and “feels” strong.

Perhaps it’s just like many of us. Scratch and encourage and you’ll find a world of potentially rich, untapped treasures.

A Cherry I loved was a dear friend, beautiful woman who pronounced her name Sherry but spelled it Cherry.
