Where do I get my logs?
In the past most of my logs came from Mexico. Current U.S . laws make it too difficult and costly for me to do
this. I have a small stockpile of logs and I occasionally can buy logs from ranches and local suppliers.
What kind of finish do you use?
I usually make my own finish out of either tung or danish oil combined with linseed oil and mineral spirits.
I put on a minimum of 4 coats and often 6 or more. An oil finish does not make the wood water proof so it is best to use coasters.
What do you recomend for cleaning and polishing your furniture?
Any oil-based polish will work
How long does it take to make a piece?
Usually 2-3 weeks. Sometimes during my busiest season, from Jan. thru April, I get backed up with orders, then there
may be a a longer wait. Best time to make a special order is May thru Nov.
Do you make chairs?
No, but I have excellent referals for mesquite chairs
Do you make pieces with drawers?
Not usually, but occasionally I colaborate with a friend to make something with drawers.
What about shipping?
Mesquite is very heavy. Sometimes if the piece is small enough, I can package and ship by UPS. For larger pieces
I have been doing business with a company who does an excellent job of shipping. If you call or email your zipcode, I can
give you shipping costs.
