That is a great bowl; I love the design. I must say, that is some of the darkest flame color I have seen yet in a piece of Box Elder; got any more???

Awesome piece of wood : ) Did you snap any pix of the blank before turning it ? It must have been a tough choice as to what to make out of such a nicely colored and figured piece !

Very, very nice piece. Love the figure and the fire-red streaks. You have made a great piece from a phenominal piece of wood. I have turned a few pieces from red box elder, but none of them had such brilliant red streaks. Thanks for sharing.

Ebay? For real? Nice find. And you played off the wood’s natural beauty magnificently.

man, that is sweet! I have some, but none with hunks of spalting that huge! I love that shape! -tried to make a similar shape with some i have, but i only have a chainsaw & some grinders -it looked nowhere near like that! I sure do wish i had kept more of that tree we took down though -it had more than what i already have.
