It’s been a few days since I worked on this vase. Today I sanded the inside and then glued the two halves together. When the glue set, I finished turning the outside. Still need to turn (enlarge) the hole on the top.
This project was turned almost entirely with my 1/2” bowl gouge. I had some trouble using this tool at first, but with practice I now enjoy how it cuts.
The figured maple really looks nice.
