Black Cherry Board BC-309
2.5" x 5.5" x 1.1"
This is an attractive end-grain block of Texas Black Cherry. It is 100% light pinkish-brown heartwood. It is rough-sawn, and there are a few surface marks from sawblade friction that will sand off readily.
There is a small void on the top face of the block, of unknown origin. A “toothpick check” shows that the void extends at least an inch into the block but does not penetrate through to the front or back face. This void may be a sign of other complexity within the block, which could require stabilization or fill. I see no other cracks, checks or significant flaws.
