Large Hand Made Cherry Swage Block *2nd Quality*
**These blocks are second quality, meaning that there are some small surface irregularities due to the knotty nature of the cherrywood. All blocks will still function, though some may have a small unusable area within a groove.*
This beautiful Cherry swage block was custom made by my father-in-law. Swage blocks are used to create spiculums and tubular forms.
The cherry wood comes from Florida, from a family farm and is expertly hand crafted and finished in Idaho. It has been hand finished to create a smooth finish and has been sealed by hand rubbing danish oil. This is a fairly hardwood and will withstand quite a forceful strike.
The Large block features rounded edges and 14 grooves compared the 10 in the smaller blocks.
