This is a 9 foot section of mesquite wood that was scheduled to be cleared. It was another 5 foot longer when I tried to fall the big stump into the back of the truck(now my truck has character). That wasn’t too smart. It dented the tailgate.
I shouldnt have cut that other 5 feet off to fit it in the truck because the 24 inch diameter log needs to be at least 6ft long to be cut at the mills around here.
I have finally found someone to mill the other for me as soon at the temp. gets cooler. Guess what? It’s now getting cooler outside :)
I don’t know how many bf i have, but it is a bunch. only about 3-4 more months before I can really get started using this wood. It is air drying out in the garage.
I wonder if anyone has suggestions for removing the bark, other than taking a screw driver and picking it off.
Don’t worry, I have treated the wood for bugs. I have the dead bugs to show for the treatment.
