|Aromatic Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-214
2" x 2" x 11-3/4"
This is another nice square-section, end-grain block of aromatic Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It is entirely a deep reddish-purple heartwood of our Texas Purple Heart variety. There is one prominent Cedar knot on one edge and a matching pair on opposide faces (an enclosed juvenile branch).
This blank was cut completely away from the pith of the log and I see no pith-related cracks. I also see no drying checks or other obvious flaws.
