When I saw Keith Fenton’s filigree hummingbird patterns, I knew I would use them for several projects. I used one of Steve Good vase patterns using mahogany for the front panel and basswood for the side and back panels. I down sized one of Keith’s hummingbird patterns and cut it out in another type of mahogany and overlaid it onto the front panel.
Comments are always welcome.

Wow, Anna! You are always using designs in such innovative ways! This is really lovely! I like the hummingbird but I also LOVE the beautiful vase. You do such wonderful work. The choice of woods is perfect!

Thank you all for your very kind comments. Leonard, no it will not hold water. It’s more for dried flowers however there are several ways that it could be made to hold water. Still have to work on that!

That looks great! How do you like Steve’s vase patterns? I haven’t seen the book yet and wondered what you think.

Leonard I will certainly share any info I get on making the vase waterproof.
Kelly, I found Steve’s pattern book on vases well worth getting. They are very easy to cut and construct and the designs are beautiful. The book is available in pdf form as a download from his blog site. http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.ca/ Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the link to download the book.
