Last time I was in Rockler, I took a look at some of the turning blanks they had and picked up a little piece of Lignum Vitae that was about 4” long and 2” square (for the princely sum of $1.99 US).

I just wanted something a little different to try in the lathe and this wood turned like a dream and gave off a very nice smell while being worked.

The final vase is just a hair over 2” (65mm) tall and 1 1/2” (40mm) round at the widest point (1 1/2” (28mm) across the top).

It’s a wonderful little dainty turning and would make a nice gift to your wife or other loved one.
