« Part 2: Blanks roughed out and first vase turned Part 3 of Turning project - Mother's day gifts series Part 4: On the final stretch - two done and one in finishing »

Got busy at work, but I did manage to get the first rosewood vase turned. Then I did quite a bit of sanding as I found the rosewood both easy to turn but prone to compression tool marks. So here is the rosewood vase roughed out in all it’s rough glory.

After sanding it looks much better, so I also did the dye work on the maple vase. After the dye job, I moved on to initial finishing. A couple of coats of poly on they are starting to look half decent.

-- No honey, that's not new, I've had that forever......
