For our daughter Tiffany’s birthday I made her a vase. 210 pieces of cherry, walnut and maple with turquoise inlay. Finished with eight coats of polyurethane. 9” tall X 11 1/2” wide. I love working with cherry. It’s easy to turn and after you’ve applied the finish it gives a beautiful warm glow.

That’s really beautiful. I just love that turquoise. You really knocked that one out of the ballpark.

The shape and colors look great. The turquoise is a nice accent. Well done.

Very tasteful use of the turquoise. I often see people way over do it when they use it. This looks fantastic. Great Job.

Beautiful, I bet she loves it.
Great Job.


-- 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.
