|Aromatic Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-210
2-1/4" x 2-1/4" x 13-1/4"
This is a nice square-section, end-grain block of aromatic Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It is the Purple Heart variety - essentially all deep reddish-purple heartwood. There are several Cedar knots scattered throughout the blank.
It was cut well clear of the main pith of the log and exhibits no pith-related cracks. There is one small and tight drying check in one end (end-grain face, top photo, but too small to see). I see no other cracks or obvious flaws.
