Mesquite M-632
3"x 3" x 6"
1.4 lbs.

This is another smaller end-grain block of Texas Honey Mesquite. It is primarily the reddish-brown of Mesquite heartwood but includes a wedge of grayish-yellow sapwood and "missing-bark" wane on one corner. Most of that sapwood will turn off as the blank is rounded.

It was also cut from very close to the pith of the log and a small section of pith remains on one corner (top photo). Again, the very tail-ends of several small, tight and minor radial cracks are present (all visible as spalt-stained lines on the top photo). Most will turn off completely as the blank is roughed to round but I would reinforce any remaining traces with thin CA glue. I see no other flaws.
