I’ve cut some on my portable sawmill, and used it for a few projects. Very durable wood, and very strong for its weight. Hard to find good straight logs, though. I like working with it, but I’ve never seen any info on how it take a stain. Grain is all wrong for cherry anyway. It used to be a favored wood for canoe paddles.
