Seems like no matter where we go in the world, someone else has the logs we would give anything to have.  ::)

Your 12" cherries up there are more worth cutting than our 12" cherries down here. It ought to hold together better during the drying process. Around here, 12" is a pallet cherry log to me, because I can't get anything smaller than about 14" to behave when it dries. The more northern specimens seem to do better. So go find you someone to mill it for you.

It doesn't have any nails in it, does it?
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.

Hey Futureforester,
I like that idea.  Be sure to take some pictures of the process and post them.  People here love to see project like that. 
It's the going that counts not the distance!
