These vases are poplar/walnut and poplar/maple Both are 8×10 inches, and finished with wipe on poly. I like to use poplar for projects like this because it shapes well, and has a lot of color contrast built in. These projects start out on the lathe, then taken to the band saw and sliced, then carved, then glued back together, then turned on the lathe again, then finished.
Point is, they are a lot of work, but a lot of fun to look at.
