New to the forum.
I'm starting a small project and need to source some Cherry lumber. I
wonder if anyone has openions (good or bad) about the following
suppliers. Or if you have recommendations for your favorite supplier.
Unfortunately my local source had recently gone belly up, so I'm force
to go to the internet.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Thanks everyone, rather a more helpful newsgroup than I'm used to.

who might point you in the right direction ..

I've had good luck with Wall Lumber as well:
That's #1 Common, but they also have 20 sq ft bundles of clear:

I'd go along with others' opinions on these three.
Suggestion... Have you tried Craigslist for your area. I'm in the NW
suburbs of Chicago and have stumbled across a number of small, out of
the garage, wood sources. While I haven't yet taken a bite of the
apple, the wood and ads looked enticing both for quality and pricing.
A lot depends, too, on what you need and how much work you can do
yourself. Looking for S4 or can you run it through a planer or jointer
in your shop?
You got a decent price. Much better than from any of those you listed, I
If you need more in the future and if you live close enough to North
Carolina for shipping costs to make sense, here are a couple I favor.
Second the recommendation of Wall Lumber. They are good people
to deal with.
FWIW, they are north of Greensboro in N Carolina, just a stone's
throw from the Virginia border. Probably a tad too far to drive
from Ohio, but shipping should be reasonable.
