Mesquite Block M-1065
2.9" x 2.9" x 12.5"
2.6 lbs.

This is a beautiful block of Texas Honey Mesquite that is full of potential.  The block is almost entirely Mesquite heartwood, a deep reddish-brown.  There are very pretty swirling patterns in the grain.  There are two patches of corner-wane with a bit of sapwood/bark. 

The block is rough sawn, as you can see in the photos -- it's not quite square.  At the smaller end, it is 2.6" x 2.8".  As you can see, it has several cracks that are associated with a knot that was near the block but not included in the block.  We've stabilized these knot-cracks with clear CA glue.  There are also a couple of fine cracks near the block end that you may also wish to use CA glue on if turning.

I've taken lots of photos of this piece; scroll down below the first 3 to see all of them.  I've discounted the block because of the cracks but I do think it's wholly useable.  I hope you find joy in this one; it's got uniqueness and character aplenty!
