Batch of Texas Ebony
This is a pretty pair of Texas Ebony turning blocks. One is mostly heartwood, the other is mostly sapwood. They'd make a nice contrasting pair of finished turnings.
Both blocks are air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. There are a few cracks in the sapwood of the smaller / darker block that you may want to secure with CA glue.
There are lots of photos -- be sure to scroll down below the first 3. I've carefully rotated each block, so that you can see all sides and ends.
