      Someone will probably give you trouble about the form, but it won't be me, I really like everything about this!
      Nice Job.

      I like the form, and the wood is beautiful, I take it that is the natural color?
    • Don Leydens
      Actually, the form is what grabbed me right away. Love it!

      Thank you all,
      Barry, It is indeed the natural color and as a matter of fact, it is quite subdued in the photo. In real life, it is almost "bleeding". When I got the wood originally, I thought the guy had phoneyed it up because the wood had such vivid reds. No doctoring, it was the real deal. This photo and finish really doesn't show the intense reds that were in some of the stock. I'll be dipping into that stash of wood more in the future and hopefully can do it justice. I'll post pix here when done.

      Very nice turning and wood selection. Do you mind letting me know where you sourced the wood? - Steve Green

      Steve, That particular box elder was purchased from a local cutter who calls me when he has something very nice. He doesn't have a store front or website. He sells mainly to a few local turners. Box Elder is available from most of the commercial sellers catering to the turning community but the coloring and "burlieness" varies all over the map. I prefer to see it up close and then make an offer on it rather than a picture or representative picture on the inet.
