Bodark Board B-717
1" x 3.6" x 22"
This is a nice 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.
There's a small amount of surface debris on the board (probably slightly muddy hands touching it, sorry!). It will clean or sand right off. There is a thin sliver of live bark running down the left edge of the front face; it is about 1/4" wide at its widest and no more than about 1/8" deep; see photo 3 for a close-up. There is one thin crack on the back face, see photo 4. It is an old crack that formed during growth; it is quite stable and is not through-going.
