What is the condition of the slabs, i.e.; how long have they been cut, assume they have been unprotected from the elements/ how were they slabbed out ( chainsaw mill/horizontal bandsaw, etc), any idea about moisture content, how much warpage.

Many thanks,
Hog
I am interested so you can PM with the info if you like.

Hello Blindhog. I milled this trunk this past weekend. The trunk has been a year or two drying and bark all fell off for live edge with browns yellows and grays.
They are 8/4 but after you run them through a sander true flat should be about 1 7/8”. they are true for most part but blade went dull on the two with narrower ends so some extra sanding with those. A router jig will true them also. they are still a little heavy so some air/dry outside will be needed unless you have a kiln. about 2-3 months out side, but its humid here. Mesquite doesn’t warp, very slightly, even after year or more outdoors. 10-12 mc air dried here in S Texas is driest it will get, from what Ive been told, i don’t have a meter. I just kinda feel it but i do prefer dry wood any day of the week. Bandsaw mill. i’ll stack them this week.
