Subject:
Which chunk of Mesquite would you take

Ron in Drums PA
>A friend in Texas (I'm in Pennsylvanina) has two sections of mesquite. He wants to send me one. Never having turned this wood I'm not sure which would be best.

Both logs are 9" diameter and 18" long.
One is straight.
The other has a crotch.

Sight unseen, which would you choose?

Thanks!
