Well awhile back I asked if anyone had any Mesquite Burl and Max had just cut down a tree with a bunch on it and was generous enough to send me some of which this is the third attempt, third times the charm the other 2 I blew out due to my impatience. This one I soaked with thin CA in the upper barrel while constantly turning it and the bottom was better. I put 10 coats of medium CA on it and buffed it and then chose a Black TI Cigar from Exotics for it. Imho this is one of the better jobs I have done lately, at least it is not that dang bowling ball material of which I am kind of tired of at the moment. Anyways comments are most welcome and y’all have a great day.

Looks really nice. I know what you mean about blowing out burl, happened to me more than I’d like to admit.
