This is a popular net for both its size and appearance. The light cream colored box-elder contrasts with the rich dark black walnut. The 8.5 inch handle combines with the 8.5 x 12 inch hoop for a very functional net.
I select the box-elder for color and grain. Box-elder is in the maple family of woods and is consider a "junk" tree. Yet hidden in some trees can be exceptional grain and color. The wood is typically a light white to cream color, but the occasional tree can display streaks of red combined with curly, quilted or swirling grain. The wood is given to spalting even while standing, so there maybe selections with honey tone or lines of grey or black. You don't buy this kind of wood, you hunt for it.
