Hi all, this was one of my favorites. A friend of mine bought it from the gallery, so now it graces his office instead of my living room!

Another nice turning. I love the looks of that box elder. Where do you get all your different woods to turn?

To Jerry (cabinetmaster) I get woods from a wide variety of sources, Lee Tree Wood Works, GotWood? Domestic turning blanks, Woodcraft, local urban reclamation, friends, and even occasionally from people with trees they don’t know what to do with who contact the Guild.

I love the red in Box Elder. I made a pen from it that I really like.
