Book-Matched Pairs of Mesquite Boards Denver

Here are a few of the Mesquite boards we were able to bring in.

Somewhat straight grained but often wavy. Mesquite trees are short desert plants that yield boards with knots, splits, wormholes, etc. Woodworkers use the defects as points of interest in the finished pieces.  The Mesquite tree grows in North America.

This picture shows a “book-matched” pair of Mesquite boards.

This is the effect derived from cutting a thicker slab in half and the two halves are mirror images of each other.

Mesquite of decent size and quality are rare, this hardwood is renowned for its beauty and stability.
