Rj, What a very pretty bowl! I have never turned Box Elder and have some at my disposal. The color I see is that natural or did you do something to make it that way?

I love the looks of box elder but have never used it. You’ve done a beautiful job with this turning. I’m curious…what is the wall thickness at the rim and near the base?
Thanks for posting it.

RJ, keep it out of direct sunlight or you will loose the red. It is a fungas from the larve of the boxelder fly. The sun has a bad effect on it and it will turn gray as most fungal fractures do. It is a beautiful bowl, nice job.

Ron my man!!!! Wow, that is so beautiful!!!! Love the shape, and what a piece of wood, I thought it was a dye on it that you somehow brought out this wonderful look. Super finish.

Beautiful chunk of wood, skillfully turned into an exceptional bowl. Thin is in!
