I was interested to read that several respondents cited Thomas Moser furniture. My wife and I own one of their bow front tables in cherry, and its top exhibits almost none of the markings I cited in my posting. It was that quality of lumber I was thinking about when I posted.

In truth, I have only purchased three small lots of cherry lumber. The first two were barn wood from local sellers. The first had a little worm damage here and there, but I was able to work around that and build a small table. The second lot was riddled with worm—I found out it is hard for me to spot this with rough-sawn, old blackened boards in a dimly lit barn. Good source of firewood. My third lot came from Groff & Groff, and was in real good shape other than the markings I mentioned.

Man, if Moser finds as much clear cherry as they must to build their furniture, the discard rate must be really high!
