I had seen a turning that had a piece of turquoise in it and I thought it looked very nice and I would like to do a turning with turquoise in it. Then I found out how much turquoise cost, even the powered turquoise is sold by the ounce. So my vase is made of maple, walnut, ebonied walnut and inlace blue acrylic pen blank.

Beautifull turning! Love the use of the inlace for the color. Looks like real turquise.

Great shape and design. Outstanding finish.

Keep it up.
