Mesquite Block M-1001
2”x 2”x 6”
This Texas Honey Mesquite block is the rich, reddish-brown of Mesquite heartwood, with less than 10% of the block being the lighter sapwood. The grain is strong and linear to gently curving.
There is a tapered, thin wedge of sapwood and bark along the front face near the bottom. (Note: Most of the bark and sapwood portion will turn off as the blank is turned to round).
I see no cracks, checks or other structural flaws.
