I posted this in the trade and swap category a week ago and didn’t sell the slabs. So I put them to good use. It was a shame to cut these up into cutting boards, but they will make great Christmas presents.
Is anyone interested in mesquite slabs? I have about 2000 bd ft of mesquite. The slabs pictured are 67”long x 22-28” wide x 2” thick ( approx. 22 bd ft each). I have a total of 6 of these and 12 slabs measuring 8.5’ long x 2’ wide 6/4. Let me know if you would like some more photos. I hate to sell them but I have to pay for tuition next spring. I know that a lot of people sell these for $15 a ft or more, Let me know what they are worth to you.
Just kidding! I wouldn’t cut these slabs if it were the last wood on earth and I was freezing in Antartica! The cutting boards are mesquite and maple. This was my first attempt at making cutting boards. The first 3 or 4 were a lot of fun to make. The last 8 have been a little grueling. I am planning to make some end grain boards out of some Pecan that I milled and, of course, mesquite. Slabs are still available.
