Red Oak Block RO-512
3.2" x 3.3" x 8"
This is a beautiful end-grain block of Texas Live Oak (Quercus fusiformis), a variety of Red Oak. It is all heartwood. Grain is attractive, with nice rays on the quarter-sawn sides.
This is a nice, solid block and very dense. There are a few areas of open grain, as red oak tends to have. And there are a few drying checks on one end. See photo for close-up. You might want to CA-stabilize these prior to turning.
