I made this wooden vase out of a cherry log. (It’s hollow in the center to hide a narrow glass vase to hold fresh flowers.)

Initial cuts were all done on the band saw, followed by a glue-up and some power carving for the details, and then finishing.

The wife likes it, and visitors get a kick out of it too. It was a fun little project.
