Bookmatched mesquite burl cheese board
Love this piece
Wow that is very cool.
Nice. Really nice.
Very nice, how thick is it?
That is a beautiful piece, what did you use for a finish.
Have a great day,
Mineral oil as will be in contact with food
That is a nice, beautiful chunk- what are the dimensions? I think that will fit a guitar top , an LP precisely, but it would probably add too much weight for a build.
I’m not sure it was gifted prolly 2 ft by 14 in
Haha...funny what we each see :)
Saw the same thing by the way...
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........
