Texas Ebony Block TE-748
1.9" x 2" x 3.3"
This small, attractive Texas Ebony block is an attractive mix of heartwood and sapwood. The heartwood has pretty variations in color, on the light brown side which is unusal for Texas Ebony. It has some minor spalting. This piece reminds me a lot of olive wood.
This block has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. It's been heat-treated to ensure there are no critters left inside. The block has an open crack that you might want to stabilize prior to turning. Black CA glue is especially attractive with Texas Ebony. The crack is at the edge of the block though, so you may be able to ignore.
I've taken lots of photos of this piece; please scroll down below the first 3 to see all of them.
