Bodark Board B-455
4-7/8" x 10-1/2" x 3/4"
1-1/2 lbs.

This is another nice, rectangular board of quarter-sawn, lightly spalted Texas Bodark. The colors are those of fresh-cut Bodark - a bright golden-yellow heartwood and a creamy white sapwood (located on one edge). The visible spalting is primarily along the heartwood-sapwood boundary where the wood is spalted a reddish brown color in a narrow band. All of those colors will, over the course of time and exposure to air and light, gradually change to a darker orange-brown and ultimately to a beautiful dark, golden brown.

There is a small area of reddish-brown lines within the heartwood on one end of the board (bottom photo, far end of left face). I do not know what this is but it is very thin (less than 1/32"). I see no cracks, checks or other significant flaws.
