A little serving tray out of Flamed Boxelder. Used a clear coat lacquer to avoid yellowing the white wood.

I have enjoyed using this wood for turning; this is the first time I have seen it used this way. Nice job and I do agree with using the lacquer.

Beautiful job. Where did you find the wood? I’ve been looking but the price has kept me away.

Thanks everyone! As usual I have to let the beauty nature provides make up for my limited wworking skills..

cwdance1- Its been so long since I cut that log up I don’t even remember where it came from. Somewhere within 50miles of me here in central Nebraska I suppose. PM or call me at (308) 3eight3-01nine8 to let me know what sizes you are looking for and I can probably get you set up for a pretty reasonable price. I will get some pictures tomorrow of some of the book-matched sets I ran through the planer today.

Chris- Take a look at Heirloomwoodworking’s projects to see how a craftsman much more talented than I puts this wood to use!

Beautiful wood and you have brought out the best in it… that natural finish is perfect!

Just for grins! Added some pictures of a couple of the book-matched sets that came out of the same log. Also a picture of the log right after the first cut was made “opening” it up.
