Mesquite Block M-968
2"x 2"x 22"
2.7 lbs

This is a very nice and quite long end-grain block of burly and moderately-figured Texas Honey Mesquite. It is 100% reddish-brown heartwood with a very attractive, undulating grain pattern. A number of prominent burl buds and clusters of small burl buds are present and are visible on all four sides. Most of those burly features clearly extend through the entire block.

I see no significant cracks of checks in this block, but there are two small, curving features on one edge (close-up of the bottom photo) that appear to be the very tail-ends of pith-related cracks located outside this block. Those small cracks will be removed if the block is to be lathe-turned to round. Regardless of use, I recommend reinforcement of those small cracks with thin CA glue before working.
