|Mesquite Block M-998
2"x 1-1/4"x 8"
This is another very nice, small rectangular end-grain block of Mesquite. The color is the rich reddish-brown of Mesquite heartwood. The grain is strong with a very attractive, undulating pattern on all four sides. There is also a very nice cluster of small burl buds within the swirling grain pattern of the annotated face (top photo).
There is a single small and shallow crack on one edge (bottom photo). I see no other flaws in this block.
