          Don't worry about what to make from it. I always believed the pattern will find the wood. There is something out there (or coming) that will be perfect.

              I have something in mind Jim, just thinking about it. This is one of the prettier pieces Bruce brought home. When they cut the popular they first ask Bruce if he wants it. Had I not been cutting the dragon and castle out of the box elder I would have cut it out of this. Especially with the knot in it.

                Great looking. Don't rush the decision. Something will come up that it will be perfect for.

                  I agree with Wayne. I have two pieces of eastern red cedar that have a similar mix of colors in them. I have had them sitting on a shelf waiting for an idea. I have thought to use it in an intarsia project someday. Using it as a sky background, comes to mind.

                    The short answer is No. UV and oxidation will dull the colors to a dull brown over time. There are clear finishes that will slow but not totally stop it.

                        I made Sarah a dragon and castle out of box elder 12 years ago. I finished it with outdoor uv polyurethane. The color stayed until she moved to Texas and hung it where the morning sun hits it. I’ll use the same on this wood, whatever I decide to make out of it. I’ve had wood for many years before using it so it won’t be a problem letting it sit for the right project.
