Black Walnut Block BW-411
2.4" x 2.4" x 8.2"
This is a beautiful spindle of slightly spalted, Texas-grown Black Walnut. It's about 60% heartwood, and the sapwood has the attractive patterns of slightly spalted Walnut. The heartwood has a few zones of spalting to a deep chocolate-brown color. There are occasional black spalting lines that cross-cut the wood grain. The grain on this block is rotated 90 degrees, such that the grain pattern is perpendicular to the long axis of the block.
This is a nice, solid block of Texas-grown Black Walnut. It's been dried to 10-12% moisture content. I've taken multiple photos of this block, so please scroll down below the first three to see all the photos.
