Hi Folks – I was recently contacted by a person from a local arboretum letting me know that they will be taking out a number of old boxwoods in the spring and asking if I would like any of the wood for turning projects. I went over to see what they look like and, while they are old and rather large (probably 6 – 8’ tall) there don’t appear to be any branches of any size beyond maybe an inch or so in diameter.
Any suggestions on what if anything could be made from this material? Other than pens, I’m not coming up with much. One friend suggested that the lower trunk and root ball may present some opportunity.
As always, any input will be gratefully accepted.
