Every once in awhile you come across that piece of wood that grabs your attention like no other. Well around the first of July I had to cut down this Box Elder cause it was becoming a hazard to my house and the neighbors. It was so rotted I’m surprised it didn’t fall years ago. At least I was able to salvage some nice chunks. I found some burl on one of the logs and wanted to see what I can make with it. The wood was very wet and extremely soft but with time I was able to get it where I wanted.This is my first Box Elder project. Hope you enjoy. It’s 4’’ tall and 3 1/2’’ in diameter. Finished with Lacquer. Still needs some buffing.
