Mahogany Block Mg-409
2.7" x 4.2" x 16.7"
This is a beautiful block of Mahogany. It's definitely not from Texas! We seldom have non-Texas wood in our inventory, but this is left over from a commissioned project. Mahogany makes a gorgeous turning wood.
The grain on this block is long and straight. The color is a deep red brown, with a beautiful chatoyance. The wood is 8 to 10% moisture content.
I've discounted this block because there is a crack in the block about 3/4 of the way along its length. I've taken multiple photos of it, close-up, so that you can see it in detail. The wood on either side of the crack is sound, but the cracked zone itself should be avoided if turning.
