Red Oak Block RO-510
1.8" x 1.8" x 14.8"
This is a nice end-grain Red Oak spindle. The grain is fairly straight and is slightly inclined to the long axis of the block. The block is air-dried to 10-12% moisture content.
There is a corner patch of bark and wane at one end, near the annotation. I've taken a few photos of this so that you can see in detail. If turning this piece, you have a good 1.5" diagonal of solid wood at that end.
