This Mesquite came from a tree growing right outside of my shop. It’s around 10” long and 1” thick. I carved the bowls with a Pfeil 7/14. This Mesquite carved like butter! I finished it with a few coats of TruOil followed up by beeswax and burnishing with a pollisoir.

I like small, simple projects that have some eye appeal. Nicely done!

It has a lot of simple elegance and character. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.
