First time to blog

This is a first for Lou Quallenberg Studios so please make suggestions or give us a few pointers if you come across it and want to help us out.......

Our plan is to use this space to share information and ideas about mesquite wood and the trials and tribulations of making mesquite furniture. We are by no means experts on mesquite but Lou has decided to dedicate the rest of his life to learning to use this wood and uncovering the many mysteries we know it holds

Hi Lou,

Saw your work in Kerrville last Saturday - your Jackson slab tables were my favorites in the show! I appreciate your complementary, curved stands; they make the piece. Your finishing is astoundingly clean and polished.

I cut some 18" mesquite on my chainsaw mill years ago, but it all ring-checked to pieces during air drying. Seeing what you've done with wide slabs gives me hope there is a way to use the stuff!

Keep up the good work.
