Mesquite Block M2001
1.1" x 1.1" x 12"
This is a long spindle of Texas Mesquite. It's the beautiful deep reddish-brown of Mesquite heartwood with a wedge of sapwood near one end. The grain is parallel to the long axis.
This block has been fully air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. There are some tiny bugholes in the sapwood and a couple of blemishes on the surface -- looks like a couple drops of something or other fell on the wood. These look like they'll sand right off.
