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.

It’s defiantly a like for me Bob, Every one a gem! What did you do on the bottoms. Any markings? Maybe a date ect?
I can’t wait to hear what your buddy Don has to say! I know he helped you get started on this Segmented work. You sure do learn fast! Nicely done I must say!

Looks like your getting a real knack on making these. # 3 would look great in my living room. Nice work Bob.
Looking forward to trying myself soon. You are making it look so easy.

Well my Aussie buddy, there is not too much that I can say that hasn’t already been said. Tony, I was glad to help Bob get started, but that little nudge was all that it took, the race is on, and I believe that he has lapped me on the first turn. There is some great looking work in all three pieces, and I like them all, but my choice would be the third one in the second two pictures. I will be looking forward to the next feature attraction. Just beautiful work.
