Black Walnut Block BW-382
3.2" x 5.7" x 6"
This is a very nice square bowl blank of Black Walnut heartwood. The color is a pleasant medium brown to reddish brown with a very nice, gently-flowing grain pattern. There are small burl bud clusters scattered throughout.
The block has one small branch bud cutting through, as shown in the close-up photo. It causes some attractive swirls in the grain and a bit of chatoyance. I see no cracks, checks or other significant flaws.
