Black Cherry Board BC-311
2.7" x 1.1" x 10.5"
This is a beautiful rift-sawn board of Texas Black Cherry with an attractive, gently swirling grain pattern on both faces. There is an inclined and slightly spalted knot that penetrates through the board on its southern end, nearer the camera in the first photo. See the third photo for details on the fascinating knot. It appears stable with no radiating cracks.
I see no cracks, checks or other potential flaws in the board.
