Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-355
2" x 2" x 10.9"
This is an attractive end-grain block of Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It is 90% the deep reddish-purple heartwood with a smoothly linear to gently curving grain pattern. There is swirling contrast where sapwood intermixes into the heartwood.
This piece is very aromatic -- it smells wonderful! We've air-dried this block to ~12% moisture content, in logs that were end-sealed with Anchor Seal. This block has one knot in it, mid-piece. Please scroll down to see all photos, as the web page displays only the first 3 by default. There are a couple of vugs in this block near one end and a small bit of wormy wane.
