Texas Ebony Block TE-740
1.7" x 1.7" x 6"
0.75 lbs.

This attractive Texas Ebony block is 95% heartwood with only a small patches of sapwood along the bottom corners on the back face, opposite the annotation.  The grain pattern is swirling and complex throughout the block.    The heartwood has pretty variations in color, as it was cut from near the heartwood/sapwood interface.   There is some eye-catching chatoyance in this piece that I cannot capture well enough with the camera -- it's a beauty!

The block has several cracks in it that you'll want to reinforce.  I recommend filling with CA glue or epoxy prior to working with the block.  Black CA glue is especially attractive with Texas Ebony and is our go-to color. 

I've taken lots of photos of this piece; please scroll down below the first 3 to see all of them.
