I'm done showing strange pieces for a while, so how about something a bit more normal? This piece of red box elder is about 5 1/4" wide by 2 3/4" tall. It has a smattering of curl on one side towards the foot, and a bonus bark inclusion, too. I'm liking this box elder stuff. This (and another box elder HF I'll show later) was real smooth-turning...a joy to work with. Nothing particularly remarkable about the form, but I'm pretty happy with it overall. My resident reviewer (the MIL) likes the blushing cheek.
Sanded to 600 inside and out, and finished with my regular Formby's Tung Oil regimine and buffed.
Comments and opinions are encouraged...thanks for looking.
