Black Walnut Block BW-394
4.7" x 4.7" x 11.8"
This large, rough-sawn Walnut block includes both medium-brown heartwood and creamy brown sapwood. Heartwood dominates the block, approximately 75% of the volume, and it gradually lightens in color toward the sapwood. The grain is gently curving and swirls tightly around small, scattered knots.
The block has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. Density of this piece is 44 lbs/ft3.
There is a single, fine crack associated with a knot, and there are two shallow end-grain cracks -- see close-up photos. You may wish to reinforce them with thin CA glue. I've taken plenty of photos -- please scroll down below the first 3 to see all of them.
