 Like most things in life, good cherry lumber is where you find it, and I’ve seen nice cherry  boards  from a number of different states.  The best, however, comes from Pennsylvania, & more specifically the North/Central part of the state.  Industry insiders like to say  from the region north of I-80 with an 814 telephone area code.  Trees from this area grow more slowly, yielding lumber with  a finer texture, minimal black gum streaks, & with a beautiful, intangible quality to the grain.  In short, it’s just prettier.  Of course, this is where most of our cherry is procured.  We proudly offer this premium material in 4/4 thru 16/4 with wide boards, matched sets and figured boards in stock.
