no previous part Part 1 of Cherry Lumber series Part 2: 1st project with my cherry lumber (just a small cutting board) »

I just bought this pile of air dried Cherry lumber from someone on cl. There is about 600 bf, I got it for $750.00, and it is already planed to a uniform thickness of 1”. I’m pretty excited to start building with it, but I’m kinda busy right now, so it might be awhile. I’m actually spliting the cost and the lumber with my brother and fellow LJ Ryan. As soon as I start building with it I’ll throw out another post.

Are you planning to dry it further? I have had good luck using a dehumidier, heaters, and box fans to finish drying air dried lumber.
Nice looking cherry.

Kevin: Wow, I paid that much for 200 bd/ft. Look forward to seeing what you build with it.
