Texas Ebony Block TE-537
2" x 2" x 8.4"
This is an eye-catching block of Texas Ebony that is 90% chocolate-brown heartwood with a thin sliver of cream colored sapwood. There is a branch knot mid-block that will likely give pretty grain textures in the interior of the block.
It has several cracks in the sapwood that partially extend into heartwood; see close-ups for detail. There are also a couple of cracks present in the heartwood on the back side of the block. They appear shallow and easily treated with CA glue. None of these compromise the integrity of the block; it will be an excellent piece to work with.
