Slippery Elm Block SE143
2.8" x 2.8" x 14.8"
This is a nice end-grain block of Slippery Elm (aka Red Elm). It has a beautiful warmth to the wood, with color of light reddish-brown. The grain on this piece is long and straight on one face, gently swirling on the other three faces. There are lots of small knots that add character to this piece.
It's been air-dried to a moisture content of 10-12%.
There are several cracks in this piece that you will probably need to treat with CA glue if turning. Several of the small knots also have voids that you could opt to fill with CA glue or leave open. There is one wane edge, as shown in the photos. We've discounted this piece a bit because of the extra features.
