the REST of the pictures on this page will give you a better overall feel for this wood
hemlock / Tsuga spp.
3" x 3" flat cut, 3" x 3" quartersawn, 3/4" wide end grain, and a 1/4" x 1/4" end grain closeup.
This softwood does not contain resin canals and the transition from light earlywood to darker latewood ranges from vague to abrupt. Plentiful rays are thin but visible at 10X
(contains one for Eastern hemlock
and one for Western hemlock)
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions
