Red Oak Block RO-507
1.8" x 1.8" x 16.5"
This is a nice end-grain Red Oak spindle. The grain is fairly straight and is slightly inclined to the long axis of the block. The block is air-dried to 10-12% moisture content.
There is a small corner patch of bark at one end, near the annotation. I've taken a few photos of this so that you can see in detail.
