Bodark Block B-462
1.7" x 1.7" x 10"
This is another nice block of Texas Bodark. The colors are the golden brown of mature Bodark with shades of light red spalting. The grain has a very attractive, slightly swirling pattern.
Two very thins crack within the center of a band of reddish spalting near the bottom of the block (third photo), appears to be at the tail-end of an old, larger crack located outside this block. They appear to be shallow, and I would simply reinforce with thin CA glue before turning. I see no other significant flaws.
