Just now getting to the big cherry logs brought in last week. Here’s the start of the second log one more after this one and I’ll be finished.

Kinda reminds me of my mill..I use the towstrap to flip them and the chain to lift them, the towstrap works buying hydraulics…once ya get the hang of can make it do what you want, but you probably know that already…good weather right now down here for milling..70’s during the day and 50’s at night…I ain’t never seen or worked with Cherry in person, ya want to trade fer some Pecan or Mesquite?

Be well…thanx fer the post

You really know how to get my attention!! These are gorgeous shots. Cherry is my favorite wood to work with and those are some wide boards. I usually only get stock in 6-9” widths here in Kentucky. I certainly see a lot of potential in those boards.
