This is a hollow vessel that I have made for a Christmas gift for our best friends. I made this from maple that was cut down 2 days prior to it hitting the lathe. It was finished with dye and a semi gloss lacquer.

The vessel stands 6” tall and is 8” at its widest point. The top opening is 1 ½” and the base is 2 ½” in diameter. The wall thickness is 3/16”.

I want to thank Trifern and others who have created these vessels before me for their inspiration and help.

Any comments or critiques are appreciated.
