PRESENTER

Randy Keys, with Canyon Mesquite and Hardwoods, was the speaker for the September 14th meeting. Randy’s presentation was entitled: “Logs to Lumber: The Nature of Wood”. Randy, by his own admission, is a Recovering Accountant who entered the wood business about 8 years ago. With his own sawmill and kiln, Canyon Mesquite and Hardwoods, specializes in unique hardwoods, primarily milled for flooring. Randy discussed the lessons he has learned, qualities and characteristics of wood, and shared what specialty woods might be available to the hobbyist at Canyon Mesquite and Hardwoods. Stocking various sizes and varieties of hardwoods, Canyon Mesquite is a new source for members of the Woodworkers Club of Houston.
