This is a new batch of 5460 year old Bog Oak blocks that just came back from getting stabilized by K&G.
Bog Oak is from old oak trees that died and fell into swampy areas and were covered by muck and sediment. While they were submerged the wood absorbed minerals from the sediment turning the wood from a blonde color to this charcoal/black color. The longer they are buried in the sediment, the darker they get. This wood was submerged for over 5000 years in the Ukraine. A test piece of the log that these blocks were cut from was carbon dated to be 5460 years old +/- 50 years. A paper copy of the carbon dating report will be included with each block.
Quite a few of the blocks in this batch are figured showing the flecks and rays like you see in antique furniture using quartersawn oak. The blocks are priced at $65 for the normal blocks, $70 for blocks with light figure and $75 for the ones with the best figure.
