No. 1. First 2 Pics. This vase is my first and is made from Tasmanian Oak, Purpleheart and the base is Eastern Red Cedar. I finally got it finished yesterday. The delay is from waiting for the Purpleheart to oxidise after being worked. Then I cut through the shoulder from the inside and had to make 2 more rings. Then I had to wait for the oxidisation process again and now it is finished. It is sanded to 400 and then polished with Shellawax Glow.
It measures 7.75in x 7.25in tall, the same as No.2.
No.2. Last pic. I have already posted this vase but wanted to show the progression.
No.3. Middle 2 pics. I finished this one yesterday as well, it is made from Tasmanian Oak, Jarrah, Queensland Walnut, and brown wood. The two veneers are Maple and Walnut. There are 299 pieces in this one.
It is sanded to 400 and polished with Shellawax Glow.
This Vase is slightly larger at 8in wide and 7.5in tall.
Hope you like them and thanks for looking. C & C welcome.
-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
