I have some killer looking Live Oak. I let the log lie around for 6 months and then after I cut and stickered it, I moved the stickered stack around (was always "in the way") for nearly years in the sun and get wet, dry, get wet, dry, get wet, dry, you get the idea; so the wood has surface checks but man does it have character. I am gonna use it for wall paneling ckecks and all. It actually looks more interesteing with the surface checks I thik. Got some white fungus, spalting, ray fleck, wild streaks etc.
Lost the camera (Again) but I am sure I'll run across it again soon and I'll post some pics.

On the Mesquite, I thought most all the Mesquite in Texas was of the Honey flavor. I never even heard of Black Mesquite. Here's a pic of it. Don't know if you can tell anything by these pic.

Looks like your having a cook-out soon. Bwahahahah. J/K man.

It looked huge when I first saw it, then I seen the extention cord and drill.
It looks either wet or waxed. No burl.
I was working on this today but I need new blades or set the ones I got. It kept going wavy.

No, I wasn't trying to impress by picking a large or figured piece, just trying to see if you knew what flavor it was. It's one of the few pictures I have. Still haven't located my camera. Again. Yawn.

Did the tree have thorns. I'm pretty sure the thorny trees are velvet.
