A very novel idea. Great start. Keep us posted on the additions to your work.

you’re a very lucky man getting to live where mesquite is abundant like that. of course Texas is paradise so it shouldn’t be that surprising that the mesquite is so beautiful down there. that top looks like it’s going to be really nice, i know the table you’re inspired by, i was just showing it off to my father-in-law last night. the joinery in the leg pedestal is amazing. well, looking forward to seeing more progress so i’ll keep checking in.
thanks for posting.

Wow!! that table is going to awesome!!! Are you going to keep it or has the wife not seen it yet??!! Either way great work, I would have never trusted my jig saw for cuts like that. Maybe I’ll have to work with that a little.
P.S. I would love to buy some woood from you but shipping it to California would cost an arm and a leg. Besides with all of the wood I have laying around my Wife would kill me. Whenever we are driving around town and I go out of the way she just groans and says what kind of tree did you find this time??

Thanks RG,The project is on hold but the wood is in shed drying so its only getting better. Shipping is expensive, even freight. If your ever in Texas stop by. I found a huge cedar recently, it fell over. I need to go get it. Its like that for me too, wife likes the furniture or projects I make so she helps reel in the big trees.

Got me a new saw at auction. $149 total price. I’ve been waiting for one these for a while. Now I just need to polish it up a little and start the practicing.
