This the second of the test pieces from the box elder log that was cut a few months ago. It is a hollow pot that finished up at 5 1/2” dia. x 8 1/2” high and it was hollowed from the bottom and then plugged and finished turned on top. It is finished with EEE, Shellawax and the 3 step Beall buffing and wax.

It is a house warming gift for John P. who gave me the log and will be cutting the tree up. It has a 3/8” hole in the top and turned to a 1/4” thick wall.

Cheers, Jim

I like it… BUT, I think the other one (1st one) showed the colors better… Much better…

Looks like Flatter is the best way to display the wood colors… Trays… Bowls… Boxes…

IMHO…

Like a pot of gold, only filled with red. Nice gift, maybe you’ll get another good log.
