Hey I just came across an eBay listing for a HUGE LOAD of mesquite pieces. They are being sold as firewood/barbecue wood, but I see some massive potential for some nice little project pieces.

Local Pickup for anyone in the Kaufman, TX area.

CLICK HERE FOR THE LISTING! IT ENDS 25 HOURS FROM THE START OF THIS POST!!!!!!

Bids start at $30. WOW—I wish I lived in Texas!!!

Last month I picked up two pieces of crotch mesquite, approx. 5bf each, but they were bookmatched. I happily paid $200 for the pair, which are destined for my Moby Plank project (see blog.)

This looks like some serious turning stock. Wish I had a lathe…

Won’t someone bite the bait??? Still no bids and the starting price is $30. 2 Hours, 39 Minutes left!!! ;-D
Whoever the seller is should be thanking me for this advertisement!!

Don’t use it for barbecue until after you’ve made something with it…

Lane, when mesquite is stacked for firewood, it’s usually because it’s full of wood borers. Unless it’s cut in the winter, the bugs will be in it within a couple of days.
