|Batch of Bodark
This is an attractive set of two matched Bodark spindles. These are 1.6" square spindles, 6.4" long. The grain is fairly straight and is slightly inclined to the long axis (perhaps 5-10 degrees tilt).
The blocks are moderately spalted with attractive dark red-brown spalting zones that serve to enhance the beauty of the grain. They've been air-dried for years to a moisture content of 10-12%. One block has a fine crack that you may wish to reinforce with CA glue, prior to working with the block.
There are lots of photos -- be sure to scroll down below the first 3. I've carefully rotated each block, so that you can see all sides and ends.
These will be a joy to work with!
