This is another gift for my friend , Roger, who cuts and spits firewood a lot. I was over looking at a log that he was told was box elder ( that I think is really mulberry), and he had this branch in the back by the kennels that he was told was iron wood. The wood looked too light for ironwood and I didn’t know it grew in Michigan. The branch had all kinds of flats on it and was not round like a normal branch would be.
So I turned a piece of it last night into a small goblet for him. It is finished with Danish Oil because it is still pretty wet.
The last shot is some iron wood that I picked up in Arizona. It is orange and brown and the iron wood in Mexico is usually darker than walnut- almost black..and real hard.
