I had done it before,, but when I saw that size of huge coconut, more than 15 cm in diameter, I decided to do it again, a vase that is made half by Mother Nature and half by myself. I hope you like it as much as I do.

That’s a beauty Sam, great use of the coconut that is usually wasted by others. You have made Mother nature proud. Thanks for sharing.

What a great idea!
You get a beautiful vase and you can eat your lathe shavings.

Thanks for this one Sam.

Like it?? I love it Sam!!!! Great imagination to bring Coconut Shell and Wood together, and they blend beautifully.

I remember years ago when People in Far North Queensland would send a Coconut to friends down South by Australia Post. They would send the Coconut while still in the husk and the smooth surface of the husk was ideal to write the receivers address and simply stick the Stamps on and away it would go just like a parcel.

You do very artistic work Sam, looking forward to seeing more of it.
