The next step in my journey to become a segmented wood artist.
The vessel has 262 pieces of sycamore and walnut with turquoise inlay.
A friend gave me a bunch of sycamore boards a few years ago and I’m just getting around to trying to make it into something eye appealing.
The vessel is 11½“ tall and 8” in diameter. I finished it with 11 coats of Min-Wax gloss wipe-on poly. I lightly sanded between coats and gave it good buffing when done with the last coat.

Looks great, I like the look of sycamore that has been turned on a lathe.

This is a beautiful vessel and I love the wood and design details. It’s a real eye catcher and shows a lot of wonderful craftsmanship.

Very nice.
Great shape
Great choice of woods
And the turquoise inlay works very well.
Might be a bit on the shiny side for my liking, but that’s just my opinion.
Well done sir.
