Huisache Block H-789
1.9" x 1.9" x 10"
This is a very attractive end-grain block of colorful Texas Huisache. It is entirely the bright rosy/reddish-brown of Huisache heartwood with a strong, gently undulating grain pattern.
There are several minor drying checks on one end of the block, as shown in the close-up photo. However, I do not see these as significant flaws - were I working with this block, I would simply reinforce them with thin CA glue before turning. I see no other cracks, checks or obvious flaws.
