This canary vase is made from rings cut at different angles, glued, sanded and finished by hand..note the grain pattern I can create using this process..canary has been off the market for 2 years and was lucky enough to find 3 great boards..rather pricy, but worth it..comments always appreciated..thanks for looking. “the ringmaster man”!

Brilliant Work Peter, you have certainly obtained a unique pattern with the grains. Have earned the title “ringmaster man”.

The title Ringmaster Man sure fits you Peter. The vase is absolutely beautiful as is the organization of the wood grain.
