This piece of Box Elder has produced some beautiful turning opportunities.

I love the way this Box Elder looks. Hated the smell while working with it. But the results make it worth it.

Thanks for looking

Amazing color in the box elder. Whatt does it smell like ? Sounds rather unpleasant.

The smell reminds me of soured milk. Fortunately, the smell does not last long after working with the wood.

The look is worth the short discomfort of the smell.

Hey Grizz, hope you’re doing well.

This is actually a makeup brush, not a shaving brush. I have some badger hair knots for shaving brushes, but thought this wood better for the ladies.
