Here are some of the latest slabs that have come off the mill. I have been trying to get as much juniper as possible lately because it seems to be fairly popular around here. The color and grain make it perfect for rustic cabins or southwest furniture. It is also a lot easier to mill then mesquite. I also attached a slab of the mesquite burl that I came across. If anybody is ever around tucson,az or payson,az give me a call I have slabs in both areas. 520-444-1225

Wow…that is indeed some very nice stuff….If I ever get in to that area I would surely have to take a look at that beautiful wood.

Unfortunately, we do not get much of those species around here in Central CA – I’ve only had a few pieces of mesquite to turn – but it is really spectacular when turned and finished…(and a tough one too….it dulls the heck out of your tools…)
