Tennessee Curly Cherry

Recommended Posts

Coop hickory kitchen cabinets with live edge hard maple top. I think some hickory hardwood flooring. I cut lumber just about every week for this guy.

I went to the mill on the mtn this morning looking for logs. They have a few pretty good cherry logs.

Snowing a little on the mtn too.

All year looking and not one curly cherry log.

I guess they are hard to come by. I would assume they sell well.

I think cherry prettier  QS than plain cut. But that’s just my two cents. The curly cherry hall table, made out of QS curly cherry.

If that’s the place you and I visited, it doesn’t look as warm and inviting as when we were there.

Trying to saw red cedar logs today. I guess its all the rain we have had, I’m having trouble with my roller guides filling up with sawdust. Cut one log and clean out the grooves in the two roller guides.

The big boys will hot steam the lumber at the end of the drying cycle to take the casehardens out of the lumber. I don’t steam my lumber.

I thought drying to fast was the cause of case hardening . Didn't know steam was used like that.

Yes, but they steam it to take the case hardening out. If they over steam it you have reverse casehardened.
