Really nice turning. Box Elder makes for some interesting pieces due to the colors. That’s the first box elder burl I’ve seen. I’d love to find some of that. Great work.

Great job Roper! Always love your small turnings. This one has great shape and flow to it.

That Box Elder is fantastic also.

Keep it up.
