January 25, 1994

John Siblik used some of his farmland to grow corn and other vegetables for his personal use, but perhaps the most valuable crop he ever obtained from his land was a dead cherry tree, which he had milled into boards of various dimensions for a minimal cost, which he then shaped into frames and other uses. He gave me two cross sectional pieces of the trunk, thinking perhaps I could use this end grain cherry wood for some kind of print project.
