The pinkish tint to the flame pattern makes me tend to lean on Elder of some sort as well. Nice work, keep em comin!

Thanks for the comments and if anyone happens to be in alberta and is interested in some burl like this there is probly 40 more bases of these trees all pushed up in a big mound that will probly be burned later this summer. Im thinking im going to spend a few days and grab a few more now that i turned this bowl and i like how it turned out.
