I have these big slabs of Mesquite that I want to sell. If anybody is interested, I would like $300 for both. They measure out at 68” Long, 20” wide, and over 1 1/2” thick. It would be great if somebody locally could pick them up as they are very heavy. I also have a mesquite root ball that would be great for turning if anyone is interested. Thanks, Rooney

Hi Roper, The root ball is at my house in San Antonio, Texas. I would like to get $100 for it if somebody would pick it up. If it needs to be shipped, I would sell it for $135 plus shipping due to time and effort. Thanks, Rooney

Just wanted to let everyone know that Rooney is a straight shooter. I bought a nice burl and slab of mesquite from him, and it was shipped fast, right to my door. And the wood is beautiful to boot! Thanks!!!

No, those two slabs are gone, but I do have two large logs that I will be milling in the near future. If you have sizes in mind, let me know.
