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.

-- - 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 !
