This hollow form vessel was made as a confirmation gift to my 14 year old daughter.

It is turned from end grain, fiddle back maple. It measures approximately 9.5 inches tall by 6.5 inches wide. It is finished with aniline dyes and wipe-on poly.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Another beauty. Really like the bark inclusion – always like seeing how something like that will turn out in a vessel and it sure gives it a lot of character. Your finishes are always impeccable. Nicely done.

SWEET!!!!!!! The shape is perfect. The finish is perfect. Surviving the initial chatter when you turned it must have been fun, but well worth the ride. I love it…......

As always Joe, it is a beautiful piece. One that I am sure your daughter will cherish always and more the older she gets. I wish you were closer I would like to take some lessons from you. But alas, I am on the far side of Michigan.

Beautiful piece Joe. Worthy of both the sentiment and the young lady you created it for.

Lucky young lady, confirmation would be a perfect time for a gift of wood. That and a little slap on the cheek. LOL. Gorgeous piece. God Bless.
