Texas Ebony Block TE-745
1.7" x 1.7" x 5.4"
This attractive Texas Ebony block is 100% heartwood. The grain pattern is fairly linear throughout the block, with swirls near branch buds. The heartwood has pretty variations in color, as it was cut from near the heartwood/sapwood interface. There's a bit of chatoyance that is beautiful but hard to capture with the camera.
The block has a large void with a few cracks near it that you'll probably want to fill with CA glue or epoxy prior to working with the block. Black CA glue is especially attractive with Texas Ebony and is our go-to color.
