Just a small 5” vase made from maple and walnut that the inlaws had in their firewood pile. The base is not permanently attached, but is simply a triangle shaped blank hollowed out.

I kind of liked the way that the piece looks elevated so I let it perch like this. :-)

As always, your comments are welcome.

You never know what you’ll find in the wood pile. When looking for wood (at a cheap price) I check out craigslist for firewood. I have found some very beautiful pieces that way. I must say, the wood pile has provided you with the opportunity to show your skill and the ability to pick out that diamond in the rough. The stand is a touch of genius. Job “Well Done” and BZ to you.

Thanks for the comments everyone – you made my day.

Jim, I agree with you and I’ve had a few nice craigslist finds as well. Having lots of “free” wood really encourages me to try different things without worrying too much about the outcome.
