Very nice work. You've been busy! Do you carve mesquite green or dry? Green is preferred of course but i know absolutely nothing about that wood. Birch is all I have and it's all I use.

Very nice work arseny, I see you even have the mesquite matching bowl to go with the spoons.   
Prepared for the worse, hope for the best.

Thanks. Skandic, ideally I would carve from green, but these are all from seasoned. It's what I have available. Kind of hard to work with though. Mike, the bowl is a wip. I'm excited about making some now that I have an adze.

That stuff is like a rock you did an incredible job with such a hard wood. You must have a lot of patience and sharp tools.

Those are beautiful! Very nice work, sir!  As I recall mesquite is harder than woodpecker lips, too!
