Here a couple pics of curly cherry lumber. Look at the outside of the boards in the first pic, thats what a curly tree will look like.

I want to show you what I got from Houston today. Talk about a box maker check this out.

Put a few more sticks of lumber up on the rails.

No sir, not at all. Did you fill it with ca glue? 

Mostly, some of it I rubbed Titebond into it and rubbed sawdust into it. Its hard to get a complete fill as the glue only goes in partway and as the wood is turned away fresh gaps can appear.

Bmac I will pm you a few pics soon. If I post them on here, Dave will be coming up my driveway wanting it. :)

I have the 9/4 tiger hard maple kiln dried. Maybe I can get your order out soon.

Sounds like a plan, I’ll pm you on the maple to coordinate.

Hang on to the scraps on that stuff, it makes so really pretty bowls and platters.

Sweet gum is probably almost as soft as Basswood.

An old man told me once that he built a chicken coop out of green Sweet Gum.  He said in about a year, the inside was on the outside.

edited to add: I looked it up.  Sweet Gum is janka 850   Basswood is 410, so it's harder than I thought it would be.  It's no good for firewood though.  We used to use it to keep a fire going when we didn't want much heat.  I know a lot of people that won't even burn it.

The last stand of timber we had thinned, the Pine brought $15.25 a ton, and Sweet Gum, that grows like weeds in a new stand of Pines, brought a dollar a ton.
