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?
Tom

Did you get an error message when you tried to upload it? Maybe it was too large. It needs to be 650 pixels or less on the long side and there is a file size limit as well.

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 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.
What process do you use to stabilize the burl?

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.

Thanks Turner,
Let me see how this stuff turns, I really like the look of the wood and can't wait to make a coupe of mesquite lures. I should be crankin up the lathe today (the wife swooped it last night so I had to cook dinner LOL) but I get home first today, so its mine!

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!!
