Nice 2 C some mesquite on a large project. I have a cutting bord that I bought several years ago. It is one piece, about 8” wide X 18” long X a good inch thick, not including the handle. I paid $35- for it as I remember. No knots, worm holes etc. I live in Texas and a large piece of mesquite comes from lots of looking, skinned hands etc. to get, then if U R lucky,,it doesn’t split. I love the redness of some of it. I am interested in some of the finishes that R used to make the wood really look RED. I have one ;piece that looks nice and red,,,,,,but I forgot what I used on it. DUMMY

Beautiful work. I really like pairing iron with rustic wood, but I’ve never worked with iron before. Were the iron legs purchased (if so, from where) or did you create them yourself? Im just finishing up my first woodworking class, but it looks like I may have to sign up for metal working next!

Have your say...
