Texas Ebony Block TE-747
2.5" x 2.5" x 3"
This small, attractive Texas Ebony block is 95% heartwood, with a thin arc of creamy sapwood along the front face. The grain pattern is linear throughout the block. The heartwood has pretty variations in color, on the dark chocolate brown spectrum.
This block has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. It's been heat-treated to ensure there are no critters left inside. The block has several open cracks that you will likely want to stabilize prior to turning. Black CA glue is especially attractive with Texas Ebony.
