  1. Mesquite Vase

    Mesquite wood vase from the family ranch with malachite inlay thanks to the geology professor at the local junior college. used a Robert Sorby Hollowmaster on the inside. Didn't take as much as i could from the inside so its a little heavy but still loved the hollow master.

    Perhaps a bit more complicated than it needs to be. Perhaps. -Russ
  3. Mesquite Mission Bed

    This is a Mission style bed that I designed in SketchUp, and built for my daughter. This was my first project using Mesquite as the primary wood. It proved to be a challenge to find lumber that was relatively clear of worm holes and flaws. My preference was to avoid lumber that required...
  4. Gemstone Box #112

    This box is the second of the series. Hopefully many more to come. The tile is tiger eye, black onyx and picture jasper. The primary wood is mesquite. Beautiful to work with. I used eucalyptus to back tile so it'll show on the inside of the lid. The pegs are bamboo and the lid is hinged with...
  5. Mesquite Patio End Table

    This table shows my continued interest in putting mesquite and iron together. It's 24" high and 25×22 on top. There's a lot of iron work in comparison to the wood work, but I haven't seen a lot of this type of construction out there. I think I'll put a shelf in the next one.

    Mesquite, 1/8" thick, 1" tall by 1" wide. Gorilla polyurethane glue finish buffed with steel wool.

  7. No lap cat

    This is a cougar I carved out of Mesquite back in 2007; I'd like to say it was one piece, but I'd be lying. The stump I was working with that looked SO much like a cougar lacked a tail, so I had to attach it later. What was extra nice about this one is that at the time there was a big cat...
  8. Men's Valet Box, frontal drawers and hidden compartments.

  9. No strings attached My version.

    First off, I'd like to thank Dan, Eklund for the great Guitar pattern in the Holiday issue of SSW&C magazine about a year ago. This was so fun yet so hard for me to cut. It was a great challenge for me. I used 17 different woods in this. I like the colors I used but may do a second one and make...

  11. Wall Plaque w/ Clock

    I'm finally posting a project! This plaque (clock?) was made as a gift for my MIL. I found this piece of mesquite at a local sawyer, and she fell in love with it. Unfortunatly, the pictures don't do the wood justice. It really is an incredible specimen. The engraving was done with a router...
  12. Live Edge On Top Of Live Edge - Mens Valet Box

    I don't know if I had already mentioned it but I just had Orthoscopic knee surgery done last month so it kept me out of the shop off of my feet and on my butt. I'm still recovering but am able to spend short periods on my feet in the shop. Men's Valet Box I hadn't done any live edge in a...

To join this in a mouses house or dollhouse kitchen, I have a couple attempts...

    Thought I would try something different (really different). I was given a slab of mesquite by a friend and I thought it would make a great rustic or western style window display table. The pictures show the results. The top is inlayed with turquoise in some of the bigger holes and cracks...
