    Mesquite Bowl Blanks for swap

    I just cut up a nice mesquite log. Got 10 nice big blanks out of it. I would like to swap a couple. I will send you a 12" dia x 6" blank in a large flat rate box in exchange for a nice blank of similar size, like maybe some walnut or cherry, or if you have something else that you think is a fair trade, I'm open, just PM me. If you like the real gnarly stuff, this mesqiute isn't for you. It's virtually knot and crack free. It's green so it's a pleasure to turn. In the picture is a blank ready to trade, ( although this one is 7" tall so I will have to trim it. And beside it is a rough-out from the wood. The pictures havent been tweaked, but I did wet the wood with water before the pictures. Cheers, Barry

    Hey Barry,

    Any chance of some 3x3x12 peppermill blanks?

    After I get the riser installed on my bandsaw, I'll swap a hunk for some Osage Orange.
    Not wet, not soft.
