Mesquite Block M-1013
1.9" x 1.9" x 22"
This is a beautiful, long end-grain block of Mesquite. The color is the deep reddish-brown of Mesquite heartwood. There is no sapwood visible in this block. The grain is a very attractive, a combination of linear to gently undulating patterns on all sides. There are several burl buds that create swirling patterns in the grain.
There is one edge blemish on the front face, just below the label (see photo 3). If turning, this will turn right off. There are also a couple of nearby open bug boreholes, same photo. I see no other challenges or character marks in this block.
