Mesquite Weave

I began my woodturning journey after receiving a Rikon tabletop lathe from my brother-in-law 6 years ago. That Rikon has moved on but it opened the door to a wonderful and challenging and gratifying experience. I like to work primarily with Texas Mesquite. I seem to focus on pieces that include some type of feature enhancement such as inlay, carving, beading, burning, inking or partial segmenting. Southwestern styles and shapes are appealing and challenging. I have more to learn than time will probably allow but the journey is exciting. I appreciate the opportunity to share and learn with, and from, you.
