Texas Ebony Block TE-556
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. 

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) and one crack that is larger.   There is also a patch of softened heartwood in about 10% of this block; we've discounted because of the crack and the weathering.  The weathered area is still firm but will need stabilization if you wish to turn it.
