This is a vase I just finished for my wife. The heart pattern happens four times around the vessel. It is comprised of 353 pieces. The wood species are walnut, cherry, maple, purple heart, and African mahogany. This is, in my opinion, my best piece yet. It stands 9 inches tall and is 7 inches in diameter at the fattest point. The opening is 2.5 inches. All of the wedges were cut on my home made wedgie sled. I finished it with a couple of coats of home made sanding sealer and then a few coat of wax.

-- It may not be pretty...but it's functional.

Hey can you post another picture , that one is pixelated. Ohhhh maybe my eyes are going. While nice work my eyes hurt looking at that. I can’t focus it.

The photos are fine for me.
That is really beautiful, I love the pattern and the hearts.
Great job Mate,
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That is a fantastic vase. I just discovered segmented bowl making and have made quite a few different bowls. Have not tried anything like your project yet. The wedgie sled is a handy shop tool.
