2 bucks is a nice price for air dried cherry – assuming it was stacked dried straight with stickers between the layers.
look for insects evidence (beetle holes) and check the moisture content and grain. If it is a lot of light sapwood, I wouldn’t bother with it. but straight flat wide 4/4 stock like that is a bargain at 2 bucks.
I am usually buying kiln dried in the midwest from a lumber dealer at around 6 bucks a board foot.
