Mesquite Block M1191
2.5" x 2.5" x 12.8"
This is a long end-grain block of Texas Honey Mesquite. It is entirely heartwood. The grain is gently swirling and slightly inclined to the long axis of the block. There are a few scattered burl bud clusters.
This block has been air dried to 10-12% moisture content. I see no cracks or checks. There is one small bug borehole visible on a face. You could turn it off or choose to fill with CA glue.
