I cut down a 100 year old mesquite tree about 2 years ago and milled it into to 2" slabs. That lumber is about ready to be made into dimensional lumber. I had a lot of scraps left over from the milling process and put it all into a 30 gallon trash can. I was a little bored today and it was over cast so I got out my SCM S400P 16" bandsaw and trimmed up the left overs. The bigger pieces are about 2" thick and the smaller is about 3/4" squarish. Cant wait to make some pens. The mesquite is so beautiful. The tree blew over in a wind storm and was still alive when I cut it down. The bigger slabs are just waiting for me to cut up and make a lot of things.
