THE TWIN

Two identical vases are made out of jarrah, each of them is with eight oval rings made of 8mm. thick plyywood.
I built them together step by step as identical as possible to be used on both bed side tables.
OBSERVE.. each ring sits on the top of the next one. The other pictures are close ups of extra decorations.

Good God, either you are super talented, or you have too much time. Seeing as you have 2 identical peices it must be the talent. These are incredible, thanks for sharing

Sam, these are stunning pieces. As I have said several times I will never look upon plywood the same anymore. I would never have dreamed that it could provide such decorative detail as it does in these turnings. I have always tried to hide its edges but putting them on display as is done here adds quite a bit of visual interest.

And, to tell the truth, I don’t think I could even manage to build twin boxes much less vases such as these. Your talent and skill is enjoyable to see on display.
