Here is a Bud Vase I made for my wife for Valentines day. (yes it is a little late) She forgives me.
Made from :
Main Body; Mahogany
Design rings; Bubinga and Maple.
Top ring; Bubinga
6 inch diam. at widest. 9 inch tall. 420 pieces.
Vase has an open center hole that allows for the use of a glass insert inside. (pic 3 shows the glass insert)
The rest of the vase is solid. It is HEAVY!! Wanted it to be used for a long stem flower and did not want it to tip over easy. (it won’t) haha
Finish is Tung Oil/Varnish. on the outside. I filled the inside with hand wipe poly and let it soak in for about an hour, then drained the extra. Soaked in pretty good, so should be water resistant inside in case of spill when filling.
Please leave all comments and suggestions. I am all ways looking to improve.
Thank You for looking.
