Mesquite Block M-1070
3.2" x 3.7" x 8.7"
This is an endgrain block of Mesquite that includes heartwood, sapwood, and a bit of bark.
This block has been air dried to 10-12% moisture content. Density of this piece is about 49 lbs/ft3.
I've taken lots of photos of this piece; please scroll down below the first 3 to see all of them. There are a few bugholes in the block and one crack, which is in the base opposite the annotation. It's slightly open and appears to be a vug formed during tree growth. You may wish to fill this with CA glue -- black is especially attractive with mesquite.
