|Live Oak Block LO-513
2.7" x 2.7" x 6"
This is a very nice block of Texas Live Oak. It is entirely heartwood, and it has two tones of color in the heartwood. 80% of the block is a medium-brown with hints of peach. 20% is a lighter shade of brown, as cut from nearer the center of the trunk.
There are some small radial cracks present in the lighter-toned wood. See photos for several close-ups -- scroll down below the 3rd photo to see all. I expect that these will be readily stabilized with CA glue. Otherwise, I see no defects in this block.
