Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-342
3" x 3" x 4"
This is a petite end grain block of Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It was too pretty to let it go to waste -- this will make a beautiful small turning, such as for a bottle stopper or a spinning top.
This piece is very aromatic -- it smells wonderful! There are no knots visible in the block. There is wane and a bit of sapwood in one corner, as shown in the first photo. The block has been air-dried to ~12% moisture content.
There is one drying crack on the end of the block, and I've discounted the block because of this. You'll likely need to stabilize this prior to turning.
