These bud vases can be used wet (with a glass vial) or dry. They are about 5” tall, and 2” or so in diameter.

Finished with 3 coats of Danish Oil.

Turned from branches I rescued from the firewood pile.

They are beautiful, great rescue.
Proves you never know what is inside the wood that gets burnt.
Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
