Texas Ebony Block TE-788
0.9" x 0.9" x 13"
This is an attractive long spindle, just slightly shy of 1” in dimension. I would estimate this to be 30% the dark brown color of Texas Ebony heartwood and 70% the honey-beige sapwood. The grain is long and mostly linear, with a few gentle bends in the sapwood. This will make a very attractive turning, with the interface between heartwood and sapwood being well exposed in the block interior.
I see no cracks, checks, or flaws.
