Red Oak Block RO-3
6" x 5.5" x 3.7"
This is a discounted block of Red Oak. It's an attractive piece of wood, but it has more warping and check marks from air-drying than we normally like to see.
There is a pocket inclusion of bark that intersects one edge, two corners. There may be additional bark inclusions within the block that are not visible on the faces. The rest of the block appears to be of good quality and is ready to be put to use, once the cracks have been stabilized. On this block, I estimate that the checks may penetrate as deep as 1 inch. Approximately 75% of the block is in ready-to-use condition.
