I really like the lamp. I am also envious of your ability to lays hands on such a nice big piece of mesquite from which to make it. It looks like you might have filled some voids, what might have been worm holes. I am curious about what you used.

I used epoxy and mixed some powder color.

Nice piece … All Mesquite that I have found has some sort of voids in it. Do you fill then turn it or turn it then fill??

There is a special beauty to Mesquite found in no other wood.

Most of the time I turn and the fill them. Sometimes I leave them as they are and paint the inside black to highlight them.

Have your say...
