Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-281
3" x 3" x 6-1/4"
1-1/8 lbs.

This is a nice end-grain block of aromatic Purple Heart Texas Eastern Red Cedar. It is essentially all deep reddish-purple heartwood with occasional thin lenses of residual creamy yellow sapwood. Small side limbs are marked by one medium size and several very small knots, most of which are located on edges and will likely turn off as the blank is roughed to round. The grain pattern is generally linear throughout.

The main pith of the log lies within this blank, close to one side, but I see no pith-related cracks. There is the shallow, elongated remains of an old borer hole on one face (far end of left side, top photo), along with a tight and apparently shallow drying check close to one edge. That elongated depression and associated drying check will also turn off as the block is rounded. I see no other checks, cracks or significant flaws.
