Wow – what a cool looking species of wood. I’ve never seen a slab of this and it looks really cool.

Nice build and thanks for posting!

Cool table! Do you know if the flames stay that red as the wood ages?

My first time working with it so I don’t know. It’s a very soft wood has real no value. I will keep you posted.

Very nice.

If it is left in the sunlight it will grey as most do.

Very nice table. The red will fade over time, keep it out of sun light to make it last longer.

I’ve heard box elder looks like this but I’ve never seen it.
Thanks for posting.

As John says, the more light that red sees, the faster it disappears. If you want the color to last, it is best used as an inside liner on boxes and the like.

Another great looking table, like the sturdy build and the wood has pretty grains and colors. Great job!

Have your say...
