EndGrain: Latest post

I realized that I haven’t posted anything from the modern poster lot in awhile, so here’s a wonderful O (or zero, it’s hard to tell). This fits into the mold of most of these blocks with an elongated shape, squared off counters and evenly rounded corners. It’s very industrial and serious, you get the feeling this block doesn’t have much of a sense of humor.

I love the traces of blue remaining on this block, it’s very faint. There are pencil marks near the counter, which leads me to think it might have been carved out by hand. There is a bizarre anomaly in the top left corner, which might have been caused by a router.
