Mesquite Block M784
1.2" x 1.2" x 8.7"
This Mesquite spindle has excellent grain complexity. It's the beautiful deep reddish-brown of Mesquite heartwood with a tony wedge of sapwood and bark at one corner. The grain is inclined to the long axis. There's a pretty knot at mid-block that gives the grain extra swirl.
This block has been fully air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. The knot has a couple of open cracks that you will probably want to secure with CA glue if turning.
