Here are the vases I made for a friends wedding. 24 total. The wood is poplar and was cut using a band saw. The design is not original and I can’t find who I borrowed it from. Also more photos of the votive candle holders that were on the bride/groom table and cake table. It was my first commissioned job and I learned allot doing it. #1 lesson; Don’t procrastinate! Thanks for looking.

The vase is 7” tall and 2 3/4 square at the base. I start by drilling a 6’ deep hole, 13/16” in dia. to accept the 3/4” glass test tube. I had to use my friends Steel City drill press to drill the hole without segmenting the block.Then I cut it on the band saw.

Way to nail it! I have tried making these several times but always screw it up. Here is a youtube tutorial
