Re: Is anyone building anything?

I've been working more and more with cherry. It's plentiful in this area and I can get it for about the same cost as red oak. It works well with hand tools and no worries about the burning that's common when using power tools on cherry. Plus, I really like the look of cherry especially once it darkens.
