Texas Ebony Board TE-735
0.5" x 1.7" x 15"
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 board has a corner wedge of golden-colored sapwood. This is a weak, weathered sapwood -- if you wish to use it, you will want to stabilize with CA glue or more likely, Cactus Juice. The sapwood extends 7.5" from the bottom of the board on one face, 4.5" on the other face.
There is an end-crack on the top of the board beside the annotation. It is through-and-through and runs 2 to 2.5". You could easily fill this with black or brown CA glue, and it would be near-invisible.
