268668 Mike Rock <mikerock@m...> 2019‑06‑11 Re: Box Elder
An old friend, who passed a few years back at the age of 104, had water 
powered mills and lots of wood stuff.  He ran sawmills most of his 
life.  His wood turning was awesome.  Kind of like Harry Nohr. He made 
us a set of Christmas candle holders from Box Elder and it had great red 
and green streaks throughout against the very white of the wood.  The 
red/green was most prominent near the base of the tree. He turned them 
wet and let them take on 'character' as they dried.

God bless him

The rest of the tree kept the shop warm.
