This bowl is made from a boxelder tree that came down during Hurricane Matthew last year. A member of my turning club located the tree and we all went out, cut it up, and divided the blanks. This tree had amazing color and figure throughout. I have several more pieces from this tree, there will be more to come. This bowl is approx. 8” across and 3” tall.

Wow! The color is magnificent. Did you do anything special to speed the drying?

Beautiful color in the wood, mother nature does a great job with beauty.

Nice piece of wood made into a good looking bowl. This is some of the most colorful box elder I have seen.
