Texas Ebony Board TE-734
0.5" x 1.7" x 13.7"
This is an attractive Texas Ebony board. It's a versatile piece that you could use for a small project such as a cutting board inlay, box sides, or a box top. When we cut it, we were thinking of knife scales. As such, we've left them extra long so that you can select the best grain patterns for use in your knife making. This set is long enough to produce two 5" long sets of knife scales.
This piece has an open knot that penetrates the full thickness -- you can see it from both sides. There's a small bark inclusion in it and a bit of sapwood around the edges on one side. The board also has a corner sliver of golden-colored sapwood. I do not see any cracks or checks on this board.
I take lots of photos, so please scroll down past the first three photos for additional images.
