    Mesquite Source?

    Hi All: I'll be going to San Antonio on the 21st to visit my daughter in her new life, and was wondering if anyone can point me to a source where I might be able to find some mesquite burl. Naturally, I'll have to have it shipped, as I'll be flying. Thanks for any help.

    Ed,

    You may want to check in with John Hart. I think he was recently in that part of the country looking for the very same thing.

    KC lives not far from San Antonio and he's definitely our resident Mesquite expert!

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    Yeah...I agree with Jim. KC knows it all when it comes to mesquite and he'd just be a short drive away. My family lives there and my brother has mesquite all over his property....but not much in the way of burls that you could just pick up.

    I do know that they don't come cheap though...happy hunting Ed!!

    Ed,

    I currently have a project going on where I am selling mesquite bowl blanks to finance My wife and mine's upcoming adoption of a baby. I have been posting on other sites but have not had the guts to do it here since it is so frowned on. I am in San Marcos, just 40 minutes from SA. I would be more than happy to have you come by and visit and see if I have what you are looking for. You can also visit a website I set up for this project. The address is www.adoptwood.com. I have alot of mesquite and sell it on the honor system. My site tells more about it.

    I hope this message is not against the rules since I am simply responding to a member's inquiry.
