I had leftover segments from a vase I was making so decided to incorporate them into a box. These are Maple and Walnut. The pattern is a classic ‘fish hook’ from a book I like called ‘The Art of Segmented Wood Turning: A Step-by-Step Guide ’ by Malcolm Tibbets. The book is worth the price just for the really good photography of finished and in process projects.

Perfect match. What a wonderful idea to use scraps. Definately I wouldn’t throw away such scraps.

Very nice idea with the matched set. They both look great. I agree with you that Tibbet’s book is excellent.

Paul, you did an excellent job on the pair of these. They are real beauties and certainly do compliment each other.

Beautiful set. I am not a turner but this really caches my eye. Love the execution of the fish hook pattern in both the vase and the box… really cool that the pattern goes all the way through to the inside of the box. Well done!
