A buddy of mine gave me a box elder log that had the red flame in it. I turned out this 9” bowl from it. Finish is a wipe on poly. Thanks.

Great looking bowl, I really like the flame in the box elder. I’m really getting into turning again and your work inspires me.

The position and shape of the coloring makes this look like a modern painting. Nice bowl!
