I've been sick for a week now, the only time in the shop was to split the Boyce Thompson Arboretum Mesquite burl I got 2 weeks ago. As I suspected it doesn't have the eyes and extreme figure that burls sometimes have, but it's certainly got some curl and some interesting growth.
I also have 4 pieces that are mostly straight grain, they should end up between 10 and 12" diameter and will probably end up going back to the Arboretum when finished as "payment" for the wood, but that's only if I get over this cold.
