Mesquite Board M1194
1.1" x 6.2" x 23.6"
This is a quarter-sawn board of Texas Honey Mesquite, surfaced on 2 sides. It has hard edges, no live edges. It is the strong reddish-brown heartwood with a nicely undulating grain pattern and some pretty grain fabrics visible on the cut faces. There are beautiful medullary rays in this board -- they'll really stand out with chatoyance when its been finish sanded.
The corners have a bit of wane, and there are some bore holes you may wish to fill with epoxy. Black is my go-to color for Mesquite because the contrast is so pretty. Of course other colors are great, too.
This board has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. I've taken plenty of photos of this piece, so please scroll down below the first 3 to see them all.
