Pecan Block P-445
2.8" x 2.8" x 12"
2.3 lbs.

This is a beautiful end-grain block of lightly spalted Texas native Pecan wood.   It is basically a soft tan to pinkish-tinted light brown color with subtle darker-brown streaks of spalt coloration.  There are a few lines of black pencil-line spalting.  The wood grain has a pleasant and gracefully flowing pattern.

This block has been air-dried to 8-10% moisture content.  Density of this piece is 42 lb/ft3, slightly less than the density of unspalted Pecan.   To achieve this beautiful degree of spalting, the wood does give up a little bit of density and strength.  Turning this block to achieve a good finish without tearout will require sharp tools and a light touch.

I see no cracks or checks in this block.  There are several small open and/or frass-filled bugholes of 1/8" to 1/4" diameter.
