Red Oak Block RO-504
1.8" x 1.8" x 10.2"
This is a nice end-grain Red Oak spindle. The grain is long and fairly straight. The block is rough-cut and air-dried to 10-12% moisture content.
This block has a 50/50 mix of heartwood and sapwood. There is a bark and wane area along one edge. At the maximum, it extends about 1/2 inch into the block. It tapers and pinches out along the edge. See photos for detail.
