Mesquite Question

Barbara Gill, Remlik VA
>I have always turned mesquite green to finished but I have always turned bowls. I have a piece of mesquite large enough to turn two plates about 10 1/2" in diameter. The blank would start out about 5/4".

Is wet mesquite as stable when turned into plates as it is when turned into bowls?
