Mesquite Valley WoodcraftsListing #62 Listed on: 01/31/2008
Mesquite Valley Woodcrafts is run by Caleb Scarbrough. He started milling wood in 2006 with his dad at age 17 simply to supply wood for his own woodworking interests. He soon started having requests for sawmilling services from local tree cutters and landowners, and also for high-grade lumber from woodworkers from coast to coast.
Their primary woods are Texas Mesquite and Pecan, but they also usually have a cache of walnut slabs, elm, oak and aromatic cedar as well. Recent expansion to a dedicated building for wood storage and processing has increased their ability to serve their growing customer base. In addition to sawing, they kiln dry their own lumber and also have a full service shop where they can process the wood according to customer's needs.
