About Mesquite

Mesquite wood is hard, allowing it to be used for furniture and implements. It is highly desirable due to its dimensional stability, after being fully cured.

Mesquite is an expensive wood. It grows only about half an inch a year during optimum conditions when there’s lots of rain and ample growing space available. In addition, locating just the right tree or previously harvested lumber for a specific piece may take some time. The wood must then be kiln dried for 60 days or, in some cases, longer.

The most important thing to know is that the end product is well worth the expense and wait.
