Huisache Block H-790
1.8" x 1.9" x 9.7"
0.9 lbs.

This pretty piece is an 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. 

One edge approaches the bark interface, but it doesn't appear to have any actual bark.  There is a small amount of sapwood present along this edge, as shown in photo 1 and in the close-up.  There is one sapwood-associated crack that you may wish to stabilize.  There are also a couple of minor drying cracks on one end.   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.
