That is some pretty wood my friend. I can see several tables there. You have a great spokes model.

I’m thinking that slab on the far right (behind the new junior Vanna White) is about the nicest slab of lumber I’ve seen. Hope to see that posted someday with a flawless clear-coat finish.

That Mesquite is spectacular (and the model is a doll). If you ever have enough for a couple of small boxes, I’d love to buy some from you. Just PM me, if you ever have any extra (small quantities).

Those are the largest Mesquite boards I have ever seen. I’m sure if you are looking to get rid of these slabs you’ll have plenty of buyers here! Thanks!!

So that sawmill is just a big band saw on it’s side. How cool is that. Ok so I am easily impressed.

Thanks everybody! I also like the piece on the far right DB, and the large piece on the far left, those are edge pieces. I should quarter saw logs to get four of those, maybe nextime. Cajunpen, I have cutoff pieces, I’ll send you a picture.DW, shipping is roughly $100 Fedex.(149lbs, 70” x 20” x 3”) See my ebay auction(lol)I used to mill logs on a 12” throat/capacity Grizzly vertical bandsaw but the logs got too heavy as my imagination grew.I now realize I need a crimping tool/a tool to offset band blade teeth after sharpening. Can somebody please link me too the best tool availabe for that. Thanks again.

Beautiful! Can’t wait to see what you create.
How did you come across the log, and where is the rest of the tree?

Let me know if you are interested in getting rid of the scrap. That Mesquite is great for ‘Grillin Steaks’ too!
By the way.. Very Cute Model.
