Mesquite wood is a lesser known wood, but it is one of the most beautiful kinds available. Mesquite covers about 100 million acres of land and is most commonly found in the Southwestern United States and also dry regions, such as, Southern California, Colorado, Utah, and in Mexico. In the desert, the mesquite tree looks more like a thorny bush than a tree, but in other areas, the trees can grow to be 20-40 feet tall.
Mesquite has become increasingly popular over the last 20 years, mainly for its unique charm and character. It offers one of a kind features - an array of colors, imperfections, and swirling grain. Mesquite is a thick, heavy wood, that can withstand almost anything. It's an extremely stable wood and does not buckle or split, making it a favorite of woodworkers.
Fine woodworking and craftsmanship has traditonally been associated with furniture made of classic hardwoods, like oak, cherry, walnut and maple. While these woods are beautiful, they tend to be more flawless pieces, not donning natural imperfections like mequite pieces. Rather than trying to cover up blemishes on mesquite wood, woodworkers turn these blemishes into features and selling points.
