Several years ago, I was turning large natural edge bowls out of burl mesquite I bought from a guy in West Texas. The wood came in blocks about 18" on a side with one side being bark.

I tried the phone number I had for the guy and it's not a working number.

I neighbor wants me to make her a bowl from burl mesquite.

Anyone know where I can find large burl mesquite blanks?
