After few accidents I decided to stabilize these three glass vases by this idea.
The interested part of the project was I produced three of them from one blank of silky oak in the size of the largest one, including the six legs which were taken from the heart of the smallest stand.
I’m known by turning multy pieces to produce one thing, here I made three things out of one piece. How about that !!
Parting tool was used to separet them.
