Aromatic Purple Heart Cedar Block ERC-305
4-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 12-1/4"
5 lbs.

This is a very nice end-grain block of Purple Heart Eastern Red Cedar. The colors are mainly a overall light purplish red with darker purple spalt-stain stripes and knots. There are bits of light brown sapwood on two edges that will turn off as the block is roughed to round. Cut from an area of numerous side limbs, this block includes a number of prominent knots surrounded by attractive, crotch-related, swirling grain.

The main pith of the log lies outside this blank but the piths of the numerous side limbs are present. I see no cracks related to those piths. There a single drying check one edge that is very shallow (and is presently trying to "flake off" as I write this). If it isn't gone before your receive this block, it will turn-off completely as you turn the block to round. I see no significant flaws in this block.
