Made of 12 rings of vertically leminated plywood and each ring is made of 6 segments. The same thing with the lip, 6 segments, but higher.

This is COOL!

Never would have imagined that plywood edges could be finished so beautifully.

wow wow wow, that is so gorgeous and who would ever think it’s plywood. I’d be interested to know if the plywood renders any pitting.

This is certainly a unique vase. It has an interesting appearance and I would never have guessed that it was made from plywood.

Nice job.

Sam, Wow very nice, how hard is it to sand to a nice finish? Many voids in the plywood? What grade of plywood was used?
Thanks for the inspiration.

that looks insanely awesome, well done!

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

That’s a lot of laminating Sam, but you’re taken plywood to a whole new level !
That came out really wild looking !

Very inspiring I have seen a shallow plate made from plywood but never thought of raising the height for a vase.
