Eastern Red Cedar Block ERC-306
4" x 11-1/2" x 3"
2-3/4 lb.

This is a very nice and fairly large rectangular block of the Texas Purple Heart (Eastern Red) Cedar. The grain pattern is a very attractive linear to gently curving around a number of small to large knots. The colors are primarily a soft reddish-purple but do include attractive, darker-reddish purple of the numerous knots and several irregular stripes interlayered within the grain.

All but one of the knots are sound, but the larger knot visible on the annotated face does have a thin crack across its center (top photo, but barely visible in the photo). There is also a single thin and shallow crack (or drying check) along one edge of the block (right side of the block in the top photo, but also not visible). I would reinforce/fill those small cracks with CA glue before turning. I see no other flaws in this block.
