Texas Ebony Block TE-738
3.4" x 3.6" x 11.8"
This is a very large, rectangular block of Texas Ebony wood. This is a beauty of a piece of Texas Ebony -- it's 95% the rich chocolate brown of Texas Ebony heartwood and 5% the creamy beige of sapwood. The grain is mostly straight, except where it swirls gently around several small knots.
This wood is DENSE -- weighing in at 80 lbs/ft3 for this particular piece. We have air-dried it to 10-12% moisture content. There are a few small cracks that you may wish to stabilize with CA glue prior to working with the wood. I personally like to use black or dark brown CA glue.
I take lots of photos, so please scroll down past the first three photos for additional images. In a few, I've used an alcohol mist to dampen the wood to show you the grain and the deep brown color of the wood. This will be a gorgeous wood for you to craft a finished product out of.
