Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-340
2.2" x 2.2" x 8"
This is an attractive end-grain block of Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It is entirely the deep reddish-purple heartwood with a smoothly linear to gently curving grain pattern. There is swirling contrast where a small bit of sapwood intermixes into the heartwood.
This piece is very aromatic -- it smells wonderful! We've air-dried this block to ~12% moisture content, in logs that were end-sealed with Anchor Seal. This block has a small bit of wormy sapwood wane along one edge, as shown in the photos, as well as a few of the knots that are common in cedar. Please scroll down to see all photos, as the web page displays only the first 3 by default.
