Box elder burl dyed red and resin stabilized.
The blank and kit were purchased from Craft Supplies USA.
Finished with 10 coats of CA, wet sanded to 12000 grit.
The box elder is nice to turn but have a very toxic smell, I recommend wearing a mask. I assume that it is the resin that smells.
There are eyes that must be filled with CA before the final finish.
The second pic is the same thing just dyed green.

-- I love the smell of Home Depot in the morning, it smells like.......carpentry. Bake, Bar Lazy U Woodworks, Lehi,UT.
