Batch of Pecan
2 Spalted Blocks
2.9 lbs.

This is a matched pair of lightly spalted Texas native Pecan wood.   It is basically a soft tan to pinkish-tinted light brown color with subtle darker-brown streaks of spalt coloration.  There are a few lines of black pencil-line spalting.  The wood grain has a pleasant and gracefully flowing pattern with a degree of chatoyance.

As you can see, both pieces have wane where the block intersects the tree face.  There is no bark present.   The full-width faces of the blocks measure 2.8 inches by 2.8 inches.   The lengths are 10.5" and 10.7".  These would be beautiful for a matched pair of turnings, such as pepper mills or tool handles.

This block has been air-dried to 8-10% moisture content.  I see no cracks or checks in this block.  There are several small open and/or frass-filled bugholes of 1/8" to 1/4" diameter.  I see no cracks, checks, or flaws in these pieces.
