I am getting ready to buy marterial for my next project; a cherry side table with drawer. I would like to find a nice 4/4 or 5/4 cherry crotch that can be bookmatched to a width of about 22”. It needs to be about 28” long. I’ve looked all over ebay and done searches on this site and don’t find anyone selling cherry crotches. Any leads for sources would be appreciated. I am located in southern Michigan, but willing to drive to pick up or pay shipping.
Thanks,
John

John, you can try this:

bobhollister@hollistersawmill.com

He says he has crotch cherry. I have no experience with him, but tell him you found him on woodfinder.com.

It is just a shot in the dark but I saw this posting on CL. http://asheville.craigslist.org/mad/3313916936.html
They claim to have a lot of cherry.

Give a call to Tervol’s Wood Products 517-287-5745. They are located about 12 miles from the Michigan International Speedway. If they don’t have it on hand , they can saw and kiln dry something for you.
