Water Oak Block WO-330
2.6" x 2.6" x 13.75"
This is a very nice, lightly-spalted, end-grain spindle block of Texas Water Oak. It is all heartwood with a strong, tightly-flowing grain pattern. There is a beautiful, prominent pattern of grain-crossing, ribbon-like rays on one of the two quarter-sawn faces. Both end-grain faces exhibit some interesting spalting patterns and colors that may show well in the finished piece.
This block is solid and I see no cracks, checks or other significant flaws.
