Bodark Block B-729
2.8" x 2.8" x 11.8"
This is a nice rift- to plain-sawn board of Texas Bodark. The color is the strong golden-yellow of Bodark heartwood, with a surface patina developing of the deeper medium brown and golden tones of aged bodark. Note that the color variations on the surface (like in photo 2) do not penetrate -- the internal color is uniform throughout.
There is one small chunk missing from this board, as shown in the first photo and in a close-up. That same edge has a small bit of wane. I see no other cracks, checks, or significant flaws.
