Pecan Board P-461
1.7" x 5" x 12"
This is a beautiful board of live-edge Texas-grown Pecan wood. Its color is a soft tan to peachy light brown color with subtle darker-brown streaks of mineralization. The wood grain has a pleasant and gracefully flowing pattern. It has a nice bark along one edge, mostly intact -- though a bit loose and will need securing (CA glue).
This piece is GREEN to partially air-dried, meaning that it still retains a lot of its original moisture from when it was a living tree.. Moisture content was 20-25% when measured in May, 2022. It has been well-sealed and is in the process of slowly drying. It was heat-treated to kill off any hungry critters that may have been burrowing inside. If you need a current moisture content, please message us and we'll check its status for you.
This piece of Pecan has a few open cracks in it that you may wish to fill with CA glue. There may also be a few boreholes. This piece is rough-sawn with surface irregularities and non-square faces; you'll want to plane and joint it if planning to use it in flatwork.
I'm taking plenty of photos of this piece, so please scroll down below the first 3 photos to see more.
