|Pecan Board P-459
1.8" x 6.2" x 12.2"
This is a beautiful board of moderately spalted Texas-grown Pecan wood. Its color is a soft tan to peachy light brown color with subtle darker-brown streaks of spalt coloration. There are a many zones of mineralization as well as lines of black pencil-line spalting. The wood grain has a pleasant and gracefully flowing pattern.
This piece is GREEN to partially air-dried, meaning that it still retains a lot of its original moisture from when it was a living tree.. Moisture content was 20-25% when measured in May, 2022. It has been well-sealed with Anchor Seal and is in the process of slowly drying. It was heat-treated to kill off any hungry critters that may have been burrowing inside. If you need a current moisture content, please message us and we'll check its status for you.
This piece of Pecan has plenty of character in it. There are open, during-growth cracks that have spalting along them. There are borer holes, most with spalting. Some are open, others are frass-filled. This piece is rough-sawn with surface irregularities and non-square faces; you'll want to plane and joint it if planning to use it in flatwork.
I'm taking plenty of photos of this piece, so please scroll down below the first 3 photos to see more.
