TexasTimbers, How are ya?
I’m little bit overwhelmed at the size, so I want to marvel at it while the feeling lasts.

Also, mostly all of it is solid. I harvested it at the right time(gravity), when I sliced into it toward the center, water or juice actually poured out. I think that stuff helps in its natural defense against powder post grubs or boring pests. I also spray insecticide all over it for some safety.
I want to let the sapwood dry for few months cause I get sap buildup on my blades and they dont rip so well. Nothing like new blades for milling.
Yes it is Honey Mesquite. Honey and Velvet are what’s available hear.
You are an expert TXTimber, me too! lol
