Texas Ebony Block TE-762
1.5" x 1.5" x 8"
0.6875 lbs.

This is a beautiful piece of Texas Ebony that captures the contrast between heartwood and sapwood. The grain on this piece is long and fairly straight, with small swirls around a couple of burl buds. There is a wedge of creamy beige sapwood.  The sapwood has a couple of cracks that you may wish to fill with CA glue prior to working with the block.  There are a couple of interesting bug boreholes that you could either preserve or choose to turn off.  The boreholes tend to be sapwood only.

We have air-dried this Texas Ebony log for 5+ years.  Moisture content is 10-12%.  Janka hardness is 2820 lbf.  Density is 80 lb/ft3.  This wood is very dense and hard, one of the hardest available in North America.  The finished products are exquisite.
