TULIP VASE by BazzA Windsor England.
English white oak & US red Oak stands at 11 inch tall.
The basis of this design is credit to Steve Good but I have Beefed it up a bit and manipulated the original pattern
to make it a whole lot more chunky and of coarse it gets my Tulip symbol.
Looks fantastic as a stand alone display or is great with dried flowers.
Kissed with Danish Tung Oil, over the next few days it will get treated to lashings of beeswax.
Hope you find my project of interest and thanks for checking it out.
Regards from BazzA West London England..

I was wondering if you weigh the bottom of the vase so it’s not so easy to tip over.

Hi Larry ☺ No need to weight the base its well balanced.
Has good proportions its 11 inch high 6 inch wide and 3 1/2 inch deep. The base is 3 1/2 X 4 inchs. And weighs around 2 pound. Its quite stable. Thanks Larry

Thanks for the info Bazz…I did see the pattern posted on Steve Good’s blog. I like the way you beefed it up and increase the size. I guess since it’s used for dry flowers, a heavy base would not be needed. Another project added to the ever increasing list of items to make.

That’s a great looking tulip vase! I suppose with a liner, you could put some cut tulips in it during the Spring—should look very nice!

Hi Dave if anyone can make this in ply and make it look top class its you Dave. I have not loaded photos of the build as the original pattern is from ” STEVE GOOD” So if anyone would like to download 8 patterns of these vases head to Steve Goods website scrollsaw workshop.
Also if anyone takes a liking to this project please check out my previous two projects of other vases.
Thanks BazzA.

Thanks Candy I think this worked out well, To be honest I am really quite proud of it, and this is a gift for my Parents who are in the 80s, Yes the Danish oil really helps show that grain, it does tend to darken the wood but thats how I like it, makes it look so rich. Thanks Candy take care regards Bazz..
