I got some flame box elder off ebay, the first I’ve ever seen or worked with… this is a little piece that came with the bigger blank.

It had some pretty gnarly checks that we soaked down with CA, but other than that was nice to turn and finish. I love the color.

Very nice. Just a note on Boxelder, the colors will fade quickly if left in the light. UV blocking finish will help with this.

I looooove box elder. JB is right, keep it out of direct sunlight, unless you would pefer it to look like maple. Great job.
