  1. From the album: Gene's Stuff

    Mesquite box to hold my Daughter-in-law's Glock. Solid Mesquite, turquoise and epoxy to fill the voids. Mesquite harvested and milled by yours truly.
  2. Yesterday, Friday, we picked up around 70 BF of mesquite, a few BF of pistachio and several 5” bowl blanks of differing species to haul to IL on 11/6. Will bring back a load off walnut, cherry and maple. My back is sore. Now, relaxing in the beautiful sun in Tucson. Gonna get to 85 glorious degrees, today. Monday, we head back to the mesa, where it'll be 67°. Not bad....yet.
  3. Parts and pieces. A ways to go, yet. God willing and, if the creek don't rise, some of this stuff may get to be a box in a week, or so.

  7. A husband and wife team from Texas contacted our woodturning club, and they are going to be here next month, selling primarily honey mesquite. I'm looking for advice as it pertains to a new turner such as myself. From what I gather, they will be selling both dried and green natural bark log sections and prepared blanks. Is this wood hard to turn? Any advice other than keep my tools sharp? What kind of finishing looks good on honey mesquite, or just mesquite in general? If I get some green wood, any advice on a drying schedule? Any other advice would be appreciated. @Gene Howe, I know you are not normally a turner, but you also work with mesquite a lot, so any advice you have would be appreciated too. Thanks.
  8. Hey Cal, as promised. First PIPs. More after the slab gets cut and planed. And after Phyl gets back with the camera. That slab is 2" thick, about 16' wide and I'll cut it to yield a 48" long table top. The finished width will depend on the width of the glass "river".
  9. For a lid for the latest rifle case, mesquite was selected. Love that stuff but, it can be challenging. All my mesquite of the required length and width is milled at a full 8/4. Nice for tables and such but not for box lids. So, it was resaw time. My Shopsmith band saw is limited to 6" of resaw capacity and the lid needs to be 6.75" ( I ripped it to 7.5") so, I used the table saw and got most of it cut. Had about 1.5" left in the middle. No problem. It's only 48" long. Whipped out the Disston and went to work. At about the sawblade's depth, internal stresses grabbed it and everything stopped. Finally got it freed and tried a Ryoba 9 tpi. 4 or 5 strokes and it got stuck. Took two wedges and a mallet ( No, not any of those, Lew) to get it loose. Time to skin the cat. After 4 cups of coffee...Coffee makes pondering easier...I concluded a trip to town was in order. Came home with a Skil recip saw and a 10" blade. In five minutes the job was done. That saw brooks no nonsense. And, now reasonably wide resaws are no longer a problem. And, Gene's got another new tool. A real cat skinner.
  10. Phyl just brought me the latest issue of Woodcraft. She wants me to build the River Table featured on the front page. She wants mesquite. It'll be for one of our sons....not the one who got the Morris chairs. So, not having slabs that configuration, I found a place about 190 miles south that was recommended by a few friends over on Lumberjocks. He'll custom cut for me and his prices are 1/3 of what the mesquite cost for the rifle box. Finding a good source of my favorite wood has made my year. Gonna pour me a glass of mesquite smoked Del Bac to celebrate.
  11. At the yard where I picked up some mesquite was a shop where the yard owner's work was displayed. Thought you might enjoy seeing some of it.
  12. My brother has asked me to build a couple cases for a pair of commemorative rifles. Approximate dimensions are 50" long, 8" deep and 8" wide. Material will be 5/8" mesquite for one. The other, also 5/8", species TBD. Not sure yet, of the construction details for either lid. Maybe raised panels. But, the cases will be built as an enclosed box and the lid will be separated afterwards. I'm in a quandary about hinges. Simplest would be stopped piano hinges. I could make wood hinges, but there'd be no stop. Don't want a lid stay for various reasons. Considered quadrant hinges but I think the box is too long and they might rack. Same with similar designs. Leaning towards three or four butt hinges, if I can find any that are stopped, well, maybe only two need to be stopped, more heavy duty than the typical blister packed junk and, solid brass. Y'all's thoughts and advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
