Josh from Mesquite Burl shipped the logs yesterday. The project for the Devil Woman Saloon is back on track!
The video above shows the beautiful logs which arrived from Mexico only to be sent back when I discovered they were not what I ordered for this commissioned project. I actually found Mesquite Burl before I ordered the other logs and would you believe the folks at Mesquite Burl knew who I was before I called them? I forgot how Josh came across my work but I am sure glad I discovered Mesquite Burl. They didn’t have HUGE mesquite when I first inquired, thus the beginning of the fiasco with the logs from Mexico.
Josh has been great to work with!! He found a rather rare load of BIG mesquite logs and sent pictures. I had a tough time deciding which beauties to buy. Josh also sawed the logs in half for me and kiln dried them to kill the bugs. Poor logs will have a bit of a shock weather-wise don’t you think? Can’t wait to see the logs and get my paws on ‘em to let the sculpture creating begin!
