This was a decide as I go project. Some crappy wood from a pallet that I practiced cutting Compund Meter Angles on, got them right and glued into two whatever that I was going to practice piercing on as the wood was soft. Ended up grooving and glueing together, completed the four panels of piercing and then the carving thoughts crept in and this is the results. Could not get a smooth finish when sanding by hand so got the faithful dremel out with a round burr and dimpled the texture on, a bit of green paint, couple coats of shellac I had made up, final coat of ply and finish. Had to add a bit to the insie base so the glass vase would be just below the rim.
