This is my first attempt at this design, and what a learning curve it was. Although it is not perfect I am really happy with the end result.
The vase comprises of 444 pieces and is 7.5 X 7.5inches, sanded to 400 and friction polished with Shellawax Glow.
The timbers used are Jarrah and Tasmanian Oak.
C & C are welcome and thanks for looking.

Bob.

-- 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.

Well I think U Beaut should sponsor you as their ambasador in WA with finish results like that.
444 pieces has got to be a record as well!

A very well laid out design, it does look like a indian blanket.

Bob

You did a fantastic job on both the function and fit. Well done!!!

I have never turned Jarrah and Tasmanian Oak before is it easy to do?

hi you did a great job on the fetcher ring the Indian blanked is not ease to make
great shape to the vase that design off bottom is prone to opening at the glue joints

a floating bottom is much safer it lets the hole vase expand i had a few nice pieces open at the glue joint
and had to replace the bottom it is not a criticism just my 10 cents worth
