Very nice piece. Nothing to critique here. Form, finial ,lid, the finish…all very good. This turning flows very well. The ” Manitoba maple ” (box elder as my American friends would say) is a great looking piece of wood..the real star here of course.

this is an excellent first. As you do more, you will fine tune your finial thickness, so keep at it. Good job

I really like the vessel and finial, you did a very good job on it. What are the dimensions of this vase and what finish did you use?

O-o-o-o I love to see box elder. Your shape and top finial are nice. This may be your first project post, but I’m sure it is not your first turning! Welcome to LJs. I look forward to seeing more of your projects.

Nice work. Excellent balance, beautiful wood, clean finish, and nice detail work on the finial. Really like this piece.

Nice, How do you get the red color to stay in the boxelder without fading? Does a finish like lacquer or poly help with that?

only thing I knonw that helps is keep it from the sunlight
