Mesquite Mantle, 5’ x 5” x 8” and a Sofa-table slab 54” x 18” x 2”.
Mantle weighs 115lbs. it was fun, milled the mantle from a trunk, the slab was in my wood shed so all that needed was sanding, wire brushing and cut to size. Sanded to 100g, i might sand to 220 this afternoon. Customer wants to seal it with tung-oil so he wanted it bare. He asked me to seal it with oil, I added 3rd picture.

Very nice. I’ve got a case of wood envy.

Looks like fire wood to me. What would it cost to ship it?

Incredible chunks of wood. I really like that Mesquite – and I don’t mean for bar-b-que.

I like the reddish figure of Mesquite…Save the wood chips as they make a great steak too! And pork…and chicken and fish and…Hey! What time’s dinner? Got a lot of hungry Lumberjocks here!

wow that is beautiful wood. I’ve heard about mesquite before but never actually seen it. it looks beautiful. and as a plus you can save all the little left over scraps that you’re probably never gonna use for your next BBQ.
