This ash vase is 13” tall by 5” dia. with a lacquer finish. I can’t get a picture of the inside that shows it but it has a reverse curve like the drawing at the end.

Woodsdweller,

It looks very nice and interesting. Would you be interesting in giving more detail on how you turned it? I am assuming that you cut it apart turned each piece around and them glued them back together and completed the turning to the final shape. But that is just a guess.

Did you use a paper joint to glue it together or use hose clamps?

Very cool. Just saw a pen yesterday done like this. Your drawing explains it better. Thank you for new ideas.

Keep it up.

Al and Jeff both have me figured out. 4 pieces, perfectly square and flat, glued together with paper in the joints to be able to get them back apart. I actually use reinforced packing tape instead of hose clamps. Trying to figure out what it will look like turned around just about stalls out both my active brain cells, though. I saw this done somewhere on the net, definitely not my idea.

Woodsdweller – there is a lot of great information about inside out turning- if you would like some resources send me a pm. One suggestion to “see” what it will look like before you turn it is to draw what you want to turn on grid paper, fold the drawing in half and create a template. Your turning will then be the mirror image. You can see another example of this type of turning with an ornament that I posted here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/12642. You have created a very nice turning!

Great looking piece Bill. I bet it was a thrill when it came together so well.
