268664 Kirk Eppler 2019‑06‑10 Re: Box Elder
I know nothing of box elder, but I did a quick google of uses for Box
Elder, and turning seems like the big one.  Its generally considered the
bottom of the maple family, so softwood crates, or other garbage wood.

Seems to me that maybe secondary woods, drawer sides, dust shields, drawer
dividers might be feasible.  Benchtop, not so much.

Kirk in HMB, who loved the whirligig seed pods of the box elder.
