Texas Ebony Block TE161
1.1" x 1.1" x 8.7"
This slim spindle of Texas Ebony has a mix of 60% heartwood, 40% sapwood. Beautiful grain, slightly curving.
It's been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. There is one shallow crack mid-spindle at the heartwood-sapwood interface along the edge of the spindle. See photo for close-up. A little CA glue will secure it just fine.
