Texas Ebony Block TE-554
1.75" x 1.75" x 8"
1.2 lbs.

This is a beautiful piece of Texas Ebony heartwood. We've cut it into spindles of 1 3/4" across and 8" long.   The grain on this piece is long and straight, with swirls around small and infrequent burl buds.   There is a small amount of creamy beige sapwood along the front face of the block.

We have air-dried this Texas Ebony log for 5+ years.  Moisture content is 10-12%.  Janka hardness is 2820 lbf.  Density is 80 lb/ft3.  This wood is very dense and hard, one of the hardest available in North America.  The finished products are exquisite. 

This block has some very  minor end-grain checking (see close-up photo).   There is one small, open crack that you may wish to glue up prior to turning.
