Black Walnut Block BW-236
1-3/4" x 1-5/8" x 8-7/8"
3/4 lbs.

This is a nice end-grain block of spalted Black Walnut. It is all heartwood with a moderately complex and attractive grain pattern. The colors are an overall light brown with a numerous thin stripes of darker-brown spalting. The grain pattern is moderately complex around one (or two?) small knots. There are also several narrow grain-crossing bands of what appear to be small clusters of burl buds; these will likely be very interesting in the finished turning.

There is a small, tight radial crack associated with the larger knot on one side (too small to be visible on the photo). Note - I reinforced this small crack with thin CA glue after taking the photos. I see no other cracks, checks or significant flaws.
