Common Uses: Turned objects, small ornamental objects, wood pulp, charcoal, boxes, and crates.

Box elder is occasionally harvested in small quantities by hobbyists or specialty sawmills with lumber exhibiting reddish pink heartwood streaks being the most desirable. Dyed/stabilized burl blocks for use in turning projects are also offered. Prices should be moderate given box elders commonness, though figured pieces and/or burls are likely to be more expensive.
