    Box Elder Burl

    This is a piece that I've been working on for a few days, my attempt at being artsy fartsy. It's Box Elder burl, two pieces, about 7" diameter and 5" tall. I'm not sure what you would call it. The bottom bowl has a small hole and the the top piece has a tenon that fits into it. I haven't glued them together so the two pictures show them turned differently. My wife says it reminds her of a flower.

    Wow Curt, I'd say you nailed the "artsy" part bigtime. I really like it. There you go again thinking outside the bowl.

    ....... and inside the bowl, beside the bowl, over the bowl, under the bowl, standing a little to the right while looking out the window near the bowl..........

    Looks really great Curt, I'd say your wife is correct, reminds me of a flower too, but there is so much going on with that piece!

    Curt,

    This has to be one of the nicest pieces I've seen in a long time. Great work.
