Huisache Block H-793
2.2" x 2.2" x 4.5"
This is a small 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 and includes a small amount of bark. There are a few small cracks around a branch bud that you may wish to stabilize. 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.
