Cherry stock wood
« on: May 30, 2019, 04:02:34 PM »
I just got what I consider to be an exceptional piece of figured cherry from Tom Fornicola.
Tom says he has plenty of dry planks. I'm not connected to Tom, just thought it was worth sharing in case anybody is looking.

I've never seen a nicer cherry stock (but I don't get out much).

Thanks David, I too have bought stock blanks from Tom, didn't recognize his name. He lives west of Mark Weader's shop (central PA). He delivered several really nice hard sugar maple stock blanks to Mark for me. Good man to deal with, good wood at fair prices.

I have been dealing with Tom for a while, his wood is as good as he says, and his prices are fair, if he says he has a great piece of wood it is.
I had a piece at Marks that showed a hidden bark inclusion...Tom replaced it no problem.
His phone- 814-383-4519.
