This segmented vase is comprised of 15 rings . Each ring has 24 segments for a total of 360 segments. Accuracy throughout is the key to making this vase. However, with patience anyone can do this.

Jim, Kindlemaker, & Hix…thanks very much!

Hix…after sealing the vase to keep the cherry from blotching I used General Finishes gloss repeatedly. I wiped it on as the lathe turned the vase at a slow speed.

Steve…It’s a fun project. Thanks for taking the time!

RStadler…Thanks from a native Missourian. I miss having access to trees like you do in MO.
