Spalted Oak Block SO-447
1.6" x 1.6" x 12"
This is an end grain block of heavily spalted white oak. The spalting is strong, with plenty of black line spalting. The wood is still fairly dense and has good integrity; you probably will not need to stabilize during turning.
Each of these spalted blocks is unique! We've taken more than 3 photos of each block, so be sure to scroll down on the photos to your left to see all of the images. This block is cut as a 1.5" spindle, giving you lots of options for turning. This block would be great for bottle stoppers, duck calls, flute blanks, magic wands, and Christmas ornaments -- just to name a few ideas.
This one has a few minor cracks along the annotated face. They appear shallow and not likely to penetrate deeply into the block. See photos for close-up. You may wish to stabilize these while turning.
