This pear vase split after turning. I made a simple repair by adding a zipper. Finish was sanding sealer and lacquer.

Novel idea. Definitely out of the box thinking;-) I like it!

Great rescue to a beautiful piece. That fruit wood has a tendency to split all the time. I once made an apricot lamp and it spit and was repaired 5 times before it settled down.

I love the shape of your vase…......................Jim

Speaking as both a wood worker and a sewer, this is a unique idea, to be sure! Thanks for sharing!
