Aromatic Purple Heart Cedar Block ERC-207
2-3/4" x 2-3/4" x 7-1/2"
1-1/4 lbs.

This is another nice square-section, end-grain block of aromatic Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It is the Purple Heart variety - a deep reddish-purple heartwood with a small portion of contrasting cream to beige colored sapwood along one edge. There is one prominent Cedar knot on one face and another on one edge.

This blank was cut completely away from the pith of the log and I see no pith-related cracks. There is one prominent drying check in that sapwood section, as well as two very thin and apparently shallow drying checks in the annotated face (top photo). Most, if not all, of those checks will turn off as the blank is rounded. I see no other cracks or obvious flaws.
