Pecan Block P483
2.7" x 2.7" x 9.3"
This is an attractive end-grain block of lightly spalted Texas-grown Pecan wood. It has a soft tan color. The wood grain has a pleasant and gracefully flowing pattern. This piece was taken from a branch and includes the branch pith. On one end it is solid through-and-through; the other end has some minor radial pith cracks. You may wish to seal these with CA glue prior to turning.
This block has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content.
About the Tree
This Texas-grown Pecan tree was harvested in Fresno Texas in December, 2021. It was in a residential neighborhood where it had been planted near a home that was built in the 1930s. Over the years, the small Pecan tree grew large, and it threatened the house. The homeowners reluctantly called their tree company to cut down the tree and stack the wood for us to recover. We're always happy to save wood from the firepit or city dump. Their trash is now yours to treasure!
