Ok to continue my backyard Mesquite tree adventure, the cut and dried Mesquite slabs are now at home, picked up this morning, Had a set back in the ordeal though, once I dropped them off roughly 3 months ago the owner made sure that I understood if any metal in the wood destroyed blades that I would be responsible and I acknowledged and understood, a week or two later after dropping the logs off, I received a call letting me know the wood was ready that they had been cut and ready for pickup and that two blades were destroyed bringing the total to $274.00 but somewhere in our original conversation over the phone 2 separate calls drying was mentioned on my part but there was a miscommunication as I understood drying was included in that price, he let me know that would be additional once again I mentioned hmmm well I understood it was all included he told me he was sorry for the communication gap and we agreed of a flat $300.00. OK so 3 months pass I received a call last Thursday the wood was dry and ready for pickup, I let him know that I would be there Monday morning to pick it up, once I got there loaded it in the back bed of my truck we went to do the paper work and he only billed me for the cutting not the drying it was free, I thanked him but still insisted the total $300 as that was what we agreed on.
OK so now… I have more wood and have to make more arrangements so as to find space for storing you will soon be seeing some larger jobs from me as a lot of it will be made into coffee and end tables and there lies a new adventure as I’ve yet to make bowtie patching for the splits.
