Small vase

A small wood vase made from ipe. I applied some dark walnut colored stain to darken the vase. I glued two pieces of window trim together to make start the vase. The vase is around 6” tall. I don’t own a lathe, so I made this on a couple of stationary belt sanders.

I also made the flowers for the vase. They’re made from a material called Fimo. I included a picture of my bag of Fimo. It’s a material that you knead, shape, and then cure in a typical kitchen oven.

Nice work Darrell. Looks as good as what those lathe do ;-)

Thanks Bob. Where there’s a will there’s a way. I’m willing to bet that you have used some of your tools for other than intended purposes too.

Here’s some more stuff I made out of that Fimo yesterday….....

bacon & eggs

an apple

Looks good nuf to eat ;-) Must be the low cal size.

I remember a passerby in a suit telling me one day he would have a proper tool for that when he saw me tightening a locknut with a screwdriver and my Kleins. I told him he probably wouldn’t last long carrying a specialty tool for everything all day long in his tool pouch ;-)
