Texas Ebony Block TE-529
1.7" x 1.7" x 17"
This is a quite pretty rift-sawn block of Texas Ebony. It is approximately 90% dark chocolate brown heartwood and 10% golden-yellow sapwood with light shading of grey spalting. The grain pattern is linear to gently-curving. There are several attractive branch buds in the heartwood.
We've discounted this block because it has some void areas in knots. See photos. Each of these appear to be locations of branches which have since fallen out. This block may be a nice candidate for epoxy resin work.
