Bodark Block B-732
2.8" x 2.8" x 11.7"
This is a nice end grain block of Texas Bodark. The color is the strong golden-yellow of Bodark heartwood, with a surface patina developing of the deeper medium to dark brown tone of aged bodark. Note that the color variations on the surface do not penetrate -- the internal color is uniform throughout. See the end photo to get a sense of the interior color of this block.
There is one small area of sapwood on this block, less than 5% of the volume, as shown in the photos. This will turn off readily. I see no cracks, checks, or significant flaws. This is a great piece of turning wood!
