Bodark Block B-749
2.2" x 2.2" x 14"
This is a gnarly-and-beautiful 2.2" square end-grain block of aged and spalted Texas Bodark. It has the deep golden-orange of aged Bodark heartwood with the darker hues of spalting. It has wane along several edges, a few knots, extensive bug holes, and several small cracks. The cracks will likely need CA glue to stabilize them if you wish to make use of the full block. The bug holes can be epoxy filled or left open, depending on asthetics and your turning skill.
This block has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. I'm taking plenty of photos, so please scroll down below the first three to get a feel for the full block. It has a lot of character and will be fun to turn.
