That makes some beautiful cabinet doors! I’m saving the large piece I have for something special. But I’m currently working on a Texas Ebony cane handle for a client. It sure is pretty stuff! (“purdy” for you southerners.)

Nice lookin’ lumber!
Back in the 70’s I lived in Tucson. I liked hiking out in the desert, the so-called Pantano Wash, and there were people hunting mesquite there. Most of it was too small to mill into lumber, and when I finally asked what they were gathering it for, they said the restaurants that specialized in good steaks would add mesquite to the fire for an authentic flavor. Because all the trees were stripped, they never got big enough to mill for lumber. It’s good to see that there is harvestable mesquite somewhere!

Its humid’r here than AZ so they grow allot faster. I just acquire the in town stuff new construction, local homes, storms etc. So I may have some because I’m always looking for it but its not abundant. If everyone in the mesquite trade gathered they would probably say there is a shortage.

I’ve bought three fair-sized pieces from BlueStingrayBoots and I am very pleased. This solid, dark wood is sometimes called Texas Ironwood.

Gerald: That is some beautiful wood.

How come you never sent me any like that.

Just kidding. The pen blanks of Mesquite and Texas Ebony are just beautiful.

I have more wood than I have space for and theirs more out there. I’m bringing in a tree a day. Now would certainly be a buying time. Flitches available and I’ve met new friends, freight is very cheap now, to your door.
