This is my first time working with cherry, I found it to be a joy to work with. These particular boards were from a single wild cherry tree. My uncle had stored these boards for about 10 years before he paid me in wood for a computer desk I built for him out of ceder.
Thanks for looking.

Great looking mantel and hearth.

I would say you got a pretty good barter there with the cherry. Let me know if your uncle needs any more work done. I will take payment in wood any day.

Thanks for sharing.
