Black Cherry Block BC-306
2" x 2" x 7"
This Texas Black Cherry block is a diamond in the rough. It has irregularly sawn surfaces and some prominent but superficial burn marks from the sawmill blade. These will clean up. However, the block has a few additional features of note. There are several fine cracks on the right-side face; they run the 7” length of the block but appear to be quite shallow. There is a knot on the top face, with a couple of shakes (grain-parallel voids) and possible bark inclusion.
I’ve marked this down as an “imperfect” block and have discounted it, but there’s very nice Black Cherry here under the surface. It just needs a bit of extra attention!
