    I posted some pics a while ago of a branch of box elder I cut up with some great color in it. I finally got around to taking the rest of the tree down. I took it to a shop the other day and this is what we came up with. Check it out.

    Just bumping this to keep it close to "Milled Box Elder part 2". I'm not sure if there is a way to link the two, maybe a mod could help with that?

    Hey Jack,
    Fresh cut green. The color fades when drying but the woodworker says, or hopes, a lot of it comes back after it is sanded and sealed.
