NUMBER 100!!! This wooden block features a stratified sequence that begins with brilliant orange padauk and is followed by cherry, maple, purple heart, green poplar, and Brazilian cherry. These strata are cut by and down-dropped along two normal faults on either side of a horst. The horst is then cross-cut by a third normal fault and finally a vertical dike of black walnut. Strata are exposed in a broad, meandering, V-shaped valleys that accentuate classic Rule of Vs patterns. The base of this large block measures roughly 5 inches square and is finished with Tried & True’s Original Wood Finish of non-toxic polymerized linseed oil and beeswax.
