I want to try to play with a little mesquite but it is a little hard to come by in California. LOL
If anyone would be willing to send me two pieces about 2"x2"x8", I would be happy to make them a lure using one of the pieces. and retuen it to them.

Any takers?

Mesquite Burl

Surf Hunter,

I wish I still had some of this mesquite burl in the size you mentioned. I have cut all of this up and have it drying out in the shop now. If I run across anymore like this I will keep you in mind.

No there was no error message, just the red X in the box. I use photobucket as a host site.................could that be a problem?
Photobucket wil give you am image code option -- it looks like
. You copy that and just paste it in the body of your post and it should show up. Just for future reference.

Thanks for the help Charles.

Bill, at this moment my supply is very limited and I am trying to hang on to what I have for special projects as they arise. I am always keeping my eyes peeled looking for more and when I do I will let ya know.

Surf Hunter,
I've got a bunch of Mesquite. Not burled like previously posted. I have 1/2 limbs about 3" to 4" thick and 5" to 6" wide. still with the bark. Heart and Sapwood. You's have to mill it or I could fire up the band saw and cut your request. Let me know.

Surf Hunter,
Wow!! I'm glad my wife has other hobbies.... She hasn't gotten on my lathe yet. She paints Ceramics and Rosmaling, which I couldn't do if my life depended on it.... So I'm safe for now. Hope dinner was good. Might earn you shop points!!
