Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-344
1.5" x 1.5" x 12.5"
This is an attractive end-grain block of Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It is entirely the deep reddish-purple heartwood with a smoothly linear to gently curving grain pattern. There is swirling contrast where a small bit of sapwood intermixes into the heartwood.
This piece is very aromatic -- it smells wonderful! We've air-dried this block to ~12% moisture content, in logs that were end-sealed with Anchor Seal. This block has a wane edge, as shown in the photos. There is also one moderate-sized knot with a branch/bark inclusion. Please scroll down to see all photos, as the web page displays only the first 3 by default.
