The tall vase is cherry, bloodwood with turquoise inlay. The shorter one is spalted hickory with turquoise, copper and glass inlays.

For me, the Turquoise takes getting used to, but I appreciate the quality of the turning. Have you ever just left the voids to show without filling them?

I have other pieces where I leave the voids open and it adds a lot of character the piece.

Nice work – I think the turquoise can add to the piece – it almost becomes a matter of what works in the environment you place the vase. Lots of southwest decor here in Colorado – the turquoise fits in.

Hi John;

Very nice turning. Kind of gives me the desire to go turn something into something! LOL

I just got a bunch of very large cherry burls. I’m going to be playing with my lathe pretty soon.

Thanks for the inspiration.
