Looking for some info from Mesquite users... Visited a friend in Ft Worth and mentioned I would like some Mesquite to make something. Couldn't find any. He made it a project and called several friends till a couple of logs were found. I had to leave before they were delivered so the friend was going to bring them when he came home. Unfortunately he passed away during his vacation touring the Southwest.
His wife brought me the two logs today. I haven't a clue what to make but I have two pieces, an oval shaped log 18" long and 8" dia. and another about 5" dia.
I painted the ends with Latex. and now I'm trying to think of the best use. I want two projects, at least. One for me and one for his wife.
Any special tricks or techniques for Mesquite, I have heard it is a difficult wood to use.
