Bodark Block B-719
2.1" x 2.1" x 19.5"
This is a nice 2-by-2" square end-grain block of lightly spalted Texas Bodark. It has the golden-yellow of Bodark heartwood with the darker hues of early spalting. There is a thin layer of pale yellow to almost white colored sapwood on one face of the block (see photo 3).
This block has beautiful grain and at least one slender branch included. This is visible on the surface as a knot -- see photo 4. There are several shallow checks in the sapwood that will turn off when bringing the block to round.
