|Mesquite Board M-1017
1.8" x 4" x 19.5"
This is an irregularly-cut board of Texas Mesquite. Its edges are not parallel, so a width of 4-1/4" at one end tapers to 2" at the other. The board has some very attractive grain patterns, with burl buds and a moderately wavy grain fabric.
There are several cracks in the board (photo 3) that may require stabilization or fill. The block is discounted because of the cracks and the irregular cut. Even with these challenges, there is a lot of beautiful wood volume to work with.
