    Late Christmas Gift

    This is a gift for a friend who is out of town. I think it is sycamore and it is 9"by6"

    Thanks for looking!

    That's very nice, Pete. Excellent job. Are you sure it's not box elder? That bit of red color reminds me of box elder.

    I think I would consider Box Elder as well.... sycamore is a bit more amber in color and the red streaks are not present with sycamore. But Box Elder (Manatoba Maple) it is pretty common.
