zebrawood and purpleheart woods used to achieve colorful effect for table decoration. the process was fun but difficult as this was my first one of this style. it is just a turned segmented vase with one of the rings being larger diameter to allow for shaping the feet. after vase is complete it is cut in half lengthwise and and reglued end to end, making the oval shape. this is approx. 16”l by 6”w
