Mesquite lumber wood, Prosopis juliflora lumber for woodworking
"Ruggedly handsome in its own way with glorious desert charm. Mesquite trees are short, twisted Sonoran desert plants and the resulting lumber reflects the intense hard life they endure. Expect a surprise collection of knots, splits, worm holes and bark pockets you can feature in your own one-of-a-kind custom projects. Freshly cut mesquite is medium tan and ages to a reddish sun-baked sandstone color."
