I like to work with canary, a very workable wood and I’m always searching for canary wood that has those red flashes..really gives it character…this piece is made from rings cut at different angles, glued and finished by hand..it has a great pattern in the rings..thanks for looking..comments always appreciated !!

Wow. That looks really great! I can only imagine the patience it took to do that. Definitely a piece of art work.

The grain in the canary wood is striking and you have done a wonderful job of exhibiting its full potential.

Indeed interesting colours and grain of this wood. Your vase making skill is not questionable.

Peter, it’s a crying shame that Canarywood can’t be finished without losing the fetching aroma, no?

Another beauty Peter, love the way you have set off the grain. Canary wood has great colors and only wish it was
readily available out here. Keep them coming, you have the ring master mastered.
