Excellent selection!
I bought this to make a keepsake box for a friend, and I couldn't have been happier with the piece the lumber I received! I don't know that I could have handpicked a better selection myself.

One of the boards had a split 1" from edge
Very nice grain on cherry, had to work around a 3" split 1" in from edge on end of one board, but was able to work around it for my project.

I wish I could place an order every week. I love the beautiful Cherry lumber that I have ordered. They have always been dimensioned perfectly, straight with no cups & twists. The grain has been good to really prime. I will order as often as I can afford to, and I am happy that I found a great source for my projects.

Great Hobby Wood Source!!
I build view cameras---those big wooden things that people took photos with in the 19th century. While some of the structure can be aircraft-grade plywood, the structural and complex bits require hardwood. Woodworker's Source Cherry meets my requirements. It machines cleanly without splitting and take a beautiful finish.
