Box elder, Ash-leaved maple (Acer negundo) is originally from North America.The tree often develops unique beautiful burls with beautiful wood, which is slightly brighter, more yellowish and lighter than the wood of sycamore maple. It is very shiny and has a clearly visible grain. Occasional burls form on the trunk of the tree, which are relatively soft, uniquely fine grained and very beautiful in appearance. The colors of this fine wood can range from very light yellow to brown to garish reddish, with these reddish streaks appearing only after infestation with the fungus Fusarium negundi. The wood of the ash-leaved maple is very soft, tools for processing, especially for turning should therefore be extremely sharp.Small defects typical of burl wood, such as bark ingrowths, loose pin knots, swirls, hairline cracks and the like, can be filled very easily during processing with thin super glue, synthetic resin and, if necessary, a little dark sawdust.
