Title: Need Black Cherry
Post by: urbanlumberinc on July 26, 2006, 11:20:15 AM
I have a customer here in the mountains who is building an exact replica of the Massachusets governor's house.  He wants to replicate the original cherry flooring and has hired me to make that happen. 

Are any of you guys or gals sitting on any black cherry???
I would prefer to get cut and dried lumber, but will also consider buying logs ands doing the sawing and drying myself.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

How much do you need??  I have about 750 board feet that is air dried cut at 5/4.

1100 bf for one room, 500 for another, plus cust wants some extra, so figure 2,000 total, would prefer live sawn boards.
