Mesquite Block M-1041
2.9" x 6" x 5.8"
This is a burly block of Texas Mesquite that will produce a beautiful 5" to 6" diameter bowl, with a depth of about 3". The grain is swirling and beautiful, with some eye-catching chatoyance and rays. This block is a beauty, and I've taken lots of photos for you. Please scroll down in the photos to see all of them.
The block has several bark inclusions, as shown in close-up photos. There is also some bark and sapwood on one corner. This will give some lovely contrasting colors in a finished bowl. You may need to stabilize the bark inclusions, sapwood, or minor cracks during turning.
