Mesquite Block M-1030
1.9" x 1.9" x 12"
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 a thin sliver of bark and wane along one edge. There are also several fine cracks that occurred during growth of the tree (think high winds from Texas storms). These are quite stable, but you could reinforce with thin CA glue if desired. I see no other blemishes in this beautiful piece of wood.
