Jarrah Burl Hollow Form Vase. Don’t think this will hold water for flowers though. haha It has several cavities that go all the way through.

4 inch tall X 2 3/4 diam. Turned to 3/16 wall. Jarrah Burl from WoodWorkers Source. 4 coats of Tung Oil/Varnish.
After a couple more weeks, (when the varnish hardens all the way) I will buff this out for a better shine.

Please leave all comments and suggestions. Your criticism is welcome.

Thank You for looking.

A beautiful piece! Being a novice at turning it looks like it would be difficult to turn.

Very nice Scrappy, was it difficult turning in the area of the cavities?

Scrappy, that sure is a nice piece of work! You are right about the tung oil…be patient with it and it will reward you on this. Did you make your own tool for reaching around the neck to hollow the vase?

Thanks for the great comments everyone.

OttoH, Not too bad turning at the cavities. You just have to take very light cuts and don’t rush things.

RichardH, Yes. I have a hollowing tool made from an Allen wrench to reach around the inside corner.

Thanks again everyone.

It is a very interesting piece! Looks like it belongs in a museum exhibit, inside a protective glass case. Nice work!

That’s a cool looking vase. It sort of looks like an ancient artifact.
