Spalted Oak Block SO-516
1.9" x 1.9" x 6.5"
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 may not need to stabilize during turning.
This block has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. It has lost density through the spalting process, but the block is still strong and solid for turning. This one has a long, frass-filled borer hole that you'll see in the photographs.
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 1.9"-square 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.
