Wow Thanks for for all your clicks and comments :: So Candy “CFrye” the answer to your question what kind of dye ? I have used an American product call FIEBINGS Leather dye as recommended by Lj WIZ.
Comes in a range of colours sorry US Colors quick dry easy to apply and drys Matt but when you spray coat with a poly clear varnish it transforms to a rich gloss finish. This Base pattern is courtesy of Steve Good but I have re sized it and changed the front pattern. Today I have made two more different styled Vase projects so I will display those in a couple of days. Thanks every one Bazz.

Fantastic made the top daily 3 . Thank you everyone for your lovely comments and support .
Thanks must go out to “WIZ” for such inspiration and great advise and for this project pattern from Steve Good.
I have today made two more different Vases which I hope to finish over the next day or so, these are made from combinations of London Plane & Yew tree from a Irish peat bog 4000 year old timber and Birdseye Maple & Wenge. Really quite looking forward to finishing these ! once I am inspired I cannot rest till its done.
Regards BazzA.

Nice job BazzA. I like the way you changed it up from the original pattern. Cool looking finish.

Hello

Very nice and very original

The color is very beautiful

I have some questions :

Did you use three pieces of wood with the same thickness ?

For the dimension : What is the larger of the vase and and what is the thickness of the three pieces of wood

Thanks for your response and thanks for sharing

Hi Diggerjacks thanks for your message :: First of all I did not show photos of the build in respect to Steve Good who has designed these patterns for sale .. – Steve Good, http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com .
But to answer your question Yes its made in 3 parts the dimensions are as follows
250 mm High – 140 mm across at its widest point and a total of 80 mm thick.
The Front and the Back are European white Oak at 20mm, and the center is US red Oak at 40mm.
Also a couple of notes :- The Twisted Star Portal Design is mine and not part or the original design of Steves.
And most of my Vases I have manipulated the patterns to suite my self by either making them wider or taller with some graphic software. I have now since designed and made my own Vases but not yet had chance to display them… Please check my other recent Vase projects here on LJs.
If you have any more questions please just ask and I will help if I can. Regards BazzA. West London UK.
