Hey everyone! Thanks for the warm welcome. You haven’t seen my work yet. hahaha. I’m very interested in woodworking and live in Tucson, AZ. I have about 200 board feet of mesquite that I milled from an old girlfriend’s tree. Well she was a young girlfriend, but you get what I mean. Anyway, I’ve learned that mesquite is extremely hard but so beautiful. I’m still in the process of making a coffee table, but I’ve had minor set backs, for example, someone stealing all my tools. I’m slowly buying more tools to work with but it takes time.
I do have a question: I have had this wood air drying for about 5 years. It’s very dry (desert) here and I feel that kiln drying won’t be necessary. Am I wrong? I don’t have a device to check the moisture content. About 4 years ago I made a table top consisting of three 6” pieces of mesquite joined together via dowels. Then I put it in a storage unit for 4 years and it has seperated at the seams. This is probably because of the heat in the storage unit. As you can tell, I’m failry new at woodworking. yes, it’s addictive! I can’t believe the work you guys have posted. It’s amazing! So my question is this: How should I go about joining the planks for the new table top?

Welcome to LumberJocks. Glad to have you aboard. †

No kiln drying is necessary. Heat is a killer. But the glue could have also failed. make sure that you use a good quality wood glue.

hi dozer326 for selling your wood craig’s ebay and don’t be afraid to call people(other furn.builders cab shops) getting the $ amount you want is hard i have goten that price from people that also wanted me to build them something. above you asked about kd my take is that the last part of thet is that the wood is heated to a temp. to kill bugs and larvi a couple other sites you should go to is ,www,woodweb.com www.lumberworks.com
