Do you have any mesquite slabs? I'm wanting to build a 7' mesquite table.

Man, I am so jealous!! That's some beautiful wood for future tables, benches, or whatever. I make live edge furniture, fireplace mantels, etc. for customers, and it's hard to find a mill that is reasonable and has the stuff I want.

If you ever want to sell some slabs, let me know!

Are you going to put in any provision for drying other than stickering and let nature take her course? As above here you have a potential gold mine on your hands (but keep hands out of it!!)

Right now I have most of my wood stacked in a shipping container that I'm using as a makeshift kiln with a dehumidifier and fans set up. Its not ideal but it works fairly well and the stuff I have cut seems to be drying well with not much checking. My plan is to one day build solar kiln in a better location similar to the Virginia Tech kiln (https://www.pubs.ext.vt.edu/content/...20-030_pdf.pdf)

Mesquite and Mystery

First pic is mesquite, other pics are a mystery. They both came from the same stack of logs out of the Austin area and I was told most of it was mesquite but there could be some cedar or cypress mixed in, bud I didn't think those beetle larvae would affect cedar or cypress like that and it looks too light to be cedar or mesquite. Maybe the fungus that caused the spalting makes the wood lighter in color as well, not sure. Any ideas?

I've had some mesquite with spalting that looked just like that last pic. What kind of moisture content are you getting using your shipping container set up?

So far I've gotten readings in the mid teens for the pine, and high teens in the oak.
