Slippery Elm Block SE142
2.8" x 3.8" x 14.2"
This is a nice end-grain block of Slippery Elm (aka Red Elm). It has a beautiful warmth to the wood, with color of light reddish-brown. The grain on this piece is long and straight on two faces, gently swirling on the other two faces.
It's been air-dried to a moisture content of 10-12%.
There are a few minor bug holes and a couple of fine end-grain checks on one end. See photos for close-ups of these features (scroll down below the first 3 photos).
