Black Cherry Block BC-220
2-3/4" x 2-3/4" x 11-1/4"
2-1/2 lbs.

This is a larger end-grain block of Black Cherry with a very attractive, lightly-crenulated grain pattern. The color is the light pinkish-brown color common in our Texas Black Cherry but includes somewhat darker colored (gray) intra-grain lines. Those three prominent, reddish-brown lens-like features on the annotated face (top photo) are the shallow remains of heavily-spalted sapwood that lay just outside the limits of this block. The wood within those pockets are unique and quite sound - if you plan to do some type of flat-work, they would be interesting features on a finished face. But, if you are turning this piece on your lathe, all of those features will likely turn off as it is shaped to round.

I see no cracks, checks or other significant flaws.
