I’ve been experimenting with mesquite lumber, here are photos of my first efforts. Attached are photos of  two small and one medium size project.
All are made from mesquite lumber (the bowl is mesquite burl) and accented with turquoise inlay.

I’ve said this before but it’s still true: one of the best parts of my job is seeing all of the photos of projects that readers send in.  This is certainly no exception:

    I am so envious of the people that can look at an object and see something beautiful to be made. This is art…

    I have some pieces of mesquite with the bark still on them. How do you make a bowl like the one made from the mesquite burl?

    Very nice work. You have to love wood to get a finish like that.

    I am in the process of making a wild turkey call and display stand out of mesquite. I have worked with many hardwoods and considered spalled walnut my choice until now. Finding good mesquite is hard and also expensive, but I think it is worth it.

    Are you making any items to sell? I’m looking for table lamps like this.
