Hey Etch. Cherry is a good working wood and is dense so little lead would be needed for weighting neutral. If you mean glider type jerkbaits, yeah it would be good. I have done a few in cherry and maple. They glide just fine. I have recently however started using lighter wood with more lead as it seems to me to be livelier in the water IMHO! By that I mean more belly wiggle and flash!
