This is an attractive end-grain block of Texas Black Cherry. It is 100% light pinkish-brown heartwood. It is rough-sawn, and there are surface ripples from the sawblade that will turn or plane-off readily.
This is an imperfect piece. There is a cross-grain crack running the length of the block and approximately 1” deep. There is also a vug on the back face that was bird- or bug-created. Price is discounted accordingly.
