|Mahogany Block Mg-450x
1" x 1" x 8.5"
This is a pretty spindle of rough-sawn 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, and these spindles are ideal for pen blanks, finials, magic wands, and the like.
The grain on this spindle is long and straight. The color is a deep red brown, with a beautiful chatoyance. The wood is 8 to 10% moisture content. I see no cracks, checks or other flaws.
