Tennessee Curly Cherry

Wow! That's some pretty stock! 

Does cherry grow very big on your side of the TN river? Its tough to find one over 12" diameter, here in the West side.

Yes, cherry gets pretty big here in the Mtns. I have seen a few at 4 ft at the butt end.

I'm with treeslayer. Anyone see the viral photos on the 'Net of Walmart customers? Some of them are hilarious, others you wonder where they came from.

If we did, I wouldn’t be able to see them for the freeways.

The sap burl not a wood burl like you see on most tree’s. It’s made from tree sap running out of the side of a tree and forming on the side of the tree. They grow every year you can see the layers on it.

I went to a log yard looking for butternut logs and came home with three maple logs that no sawmill around here would saw them. 49’’ acrosss the end. Nobody wants to spilit them anymore.

Won't split a 49" log. I'm going to ignorantly say that doesn't seem like that large of a tree, why split it? I must watch to many matt cremona videos.

I know nothing about mills. What i do know is from watching the videos that Matt Cremona posts about building his own custom band mill that has some 72" of capacity or something. So no useful relevant information.

Huh never thought that'd be a problem... Things you don't think about when the widest board the lumber yard sells is like 15"
