Texas Ebony Block TE-158
1.2" x 1.2" x 11.5"
This is a beautiful piece of Texas Ebony . It's almost entirely dark chocolate-brown heartwood, with a surprising swirl of lighter sapwood near the top of the block.
There is one small patch of bark present in the sapwood swirl (see third photo). It appears strong but could be stabilized with CA glue if necessary. There is a small branch bud on one face.
