Mesquite wood chopping block carved name inlaid crushed turquoise

Mesquite wood chopping block and serving tray with carved name and inlaid crushed turquoise

this was a scrap piece of live edgeMesquite wood that I sent the repurposed wood through my planer to smooth down. It had a lot of cracks, voids and wormholes which were filled with black epoxy. Then the last name was carved into the wood slab by hand and then filled with crushed Arizona turquoise and epoxy to create a very southwestern look to the kitchen piece.it was a fun project to do as our carved wood sign shop usually doesn’t do projects like this but will be doing more of These custom made trivets, wood coasters and cutting boards in the future.

Sawmill Carved Wood Live Edge Mesquite Sign

Custom Carved Wood Sign from Wood Signs by Design for my fellas Lavor & Rex at the WineglassBar Sawmill in Phoenix Arizona. This urban sawmill help save trees that have felled in the city from going to the landfill. Lavor and Rex are retirees from the Midwestwho decided to open up a urban sawmill in downtown Phoenix. They collect trees that have been downed by monsoon storms or folks that need to simply bring down a tree. Instead of this quality hardwood ending up in the garbage dump, they go and get these logs, mill them up into usable lumber and then kiln dried the pieces in a kiln they have on their sawmill property. Watching these guys mill up the trees that they have saved is quite a sight to see. This reclaimed piece of wood is a live edge slab of mesquite wood. Lavor wanted a nice carved wood sign sign for when they attend shows. It’s carved out of re-purposed Urban Mesquite Wood and finished with several coats of tung oil. I think the colors really pop with this wood slab.

Mesquite Wood cutting serving board carved wood with crushed turquoise inlay

Mesquite Wood cutting serving board carved wood with crushed turquoise inlay

This was a rustic piece of dried mesquite wood that was planed down smooth from a rough chainsaw cut. The cracks and voids were filled with black epoxy. A personalized last name was carved into the wood and then filled with crushed turquoise. It can be used as a chef cutting board or as a serving tray fro fruit and cheeses. Mesquite wood is very hard and tough so it will resist blade cuts. This piece was treated with a Tung Oil finish.
