Cherry Wood

I've decided to make my own wooden landing net. I found a great japanese site that shows the steps. I have started to collect some materials for the job. A friend offered me this old cherry tree that had blown over in the wind. After chainsawing it into managable pieces, I went to another friends place and milled it with him on his chainsaw mill. The smell was so rich and fruity. I got a few good slabs, including 2 x 2metre pieces.

Just another year to wait for it to dry I guess.
