This vase is made with figured maple, paduak, and black veneer. All pieces cut on the “wedgie” sled.
Approximately; 9 1/2” tall x 6 1/2” wide. Turned almost exclusively with a 1/2” bowl gouge.
Comments and questions welcome. Thanks for looking.

A very nice piece with nice tight joins. Something I have not yet tried is segmented work maybe in the future

I love how you did the triangles very much.

If you want to keep the Paduak from bleeding over then first put shellac on it first before sanding and it will be easier to keep it from going into the pores

I must say Julian a most impressive vase
Now I see reference to the wedgie sled, so I am off looking for it now!

Just had to come back and take a second look!

So how many rings make up the vase? it looks to be no less than about 17 or 18.
Dont tell me is just the ones in the photo No 5.

Also I have spotted a bike in the background it looks very much like the XJ 750 I had years ago!

Robert, It’s 17 rings, counting the black veneer. The bike is a Venture Royale 1300; which basically just gets in the way and collects saw dust.
