Texas Ebony Block TE-162
1" x 1" x 12.5"
0.6 lbs.

This is a beauty of a piece of Texas Ebony.  I estimate it to be 70% the dark brown color of Texas Ebony heartwood and 30% the of beige sapwood.  The transition between tones happens right down the center of the block, and the transition itself has some beautiful banding.  The sapwood has a curvy grain to it.  This will make a very attractive turning or carving.

There’s a bit of minor sapwood checking on the southern end.  There’s a small bark inclusion at mid-section (see third photo).  This may be an interesting feature to expose further with turning.  I see no significant cracks or flaws in the block.
