    Hello Texasstate,

    That is a beautiful piece, what did you use for a finish.

    Have a great day,

    That is a nice, beautiful chunk- what are the dimensions? I think that will fit a guitar top :wink:, an LP precisely, but it would probably add too much weight for a build.

    I grew up in Midland and there weren't any "good" mesquites, only ones that cause bicycle flats. Now, when I drive toward Stephenville to see family, I usually go through
    Snyder area and I gawk at mesquites along the road that actually have trunks large enough we could use for turnings and other projects. I love the stuff now. isn't it amazing how our perspective changes............hope I'm not growing up........
