I've never seen any "soft" cherry from the Pa. woods. I cut a 22" log from my childhood home property that grew 10 feet from a creek. If any tree should have been soft , that one should have , but wasn't. Have seen curly cherry , and stocks cut from limb crotch grain that had wonderful figure.....all very attractive. Wouldn't turn any of it down.............oldwood
49" long, 21" tapering to 17", but a piece like that deserves to be admired as it is.Can't tell how long the piece might be , but I see at least two possible stocks. There is plenty of extra wood here to extend the forearm with a splice. Cherry is an excellent stock wood , and this curly wood should never be wasted on a Coffee table...........oldwood
None taken. I started milling after seeing too many "gunstocks" cut into firewood. Too, you never know what you're gonna find when you cut a log whether it be straight, figured, or metal.Didn't mean to offend you're sensibilities on the coffee table wood. After 140+ scratch builds , my brain has become possibly too " wired" , and too prone to always see stock wood. I do drink a pot of coffee a day.................oldwood
Here's one of those Dixies (on top some black walnuts drying) I have been enjoying 30 years +. It's a .50, I have both locks (rock and cap) but haven't put theFWIW the Dixie Tennessee Mountain Rifles, Turner Kirkland's representation of the Southern "Po-Boy" rifles, were stocked with Cherry.
