I was asked if I wanted a whole box elder tree that my friend John P had at the saw mill. I had talked to John N at our picnic and told him to be on the lookout for red in a box elder tree and he brought this one to the saw mill. This pot was a test piece off the very bottom of the tree. I also have one log that I will make each of them something from the tree . The 4th photo is the end cut of that log. I’m thinking some of the tree should be cut into boards to make a some book matched projects
This pot was very wet when I turned it and so it warped in the drying process. It is 3 1/2” high and 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 oval . It is finished with Danish Oil and clear matte spray.
I’m debating on cutting their pieces complete and having them also warp or roughing them out and finish turning next year so they wind up truly round.
