Vintage Myrtle Wood Block

This block of Myrtle wood is approximately 2-5/8” x 3-1/8” x 5-7/8” and is slightly out of square. It was given to my Father many years ago while on a business trip to Oregon. He was not a wood worker so he gave it to me since I do wood working. However, after about 40 years of just looking at it I realized it must go. The block had been coated with some type of varnish which has darkened considerably changing the color of the surface. From the close-up picture, it appears to be myrtle wood by comparison to an online image.
I am sure this would be very useful for someone that has a lathe.

As Roy Underhill, on the PBS show “The Woodwright’s Shop” might say, “May the grain be with you”. Enjoy!

Returns & exchanges

I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.


If I send the wrong item I will pay cost of returning it and shipping the correct item. Any item accepted for return must be in its original “as sent” condition when it reaches my shop.
In an effort to keep this easy we want the following to happen: We list and describe it, show it as best we can, you buy, when we are paid we send it to you.
Most of the items we sell are vintage used and unused (for example old postcards, toys, books, etc.). We do our best to describe our items as well as we can and to represent the color and condition with photos. We are not professional graders of any items but again, do the best based on our experience.
Colors will vary from computer to computer so we cannot guarantee the items will look the same as on our shop display.
If there is a problem please contact us before leaving negative feedback as we would like to work with you to correct the problem, we want you to be pleased with your purchase.
All items are sold “as is” with no warranty or guarantee. If you feel we have misrepresented one of our items please let us have a convo with you. Include the item name, description or number and a short description of the concern and we will work out the problem.
