This vase has some incredible blue, gray and yellow grain…I created this particular pattern by cutting 14 rings at various angles on the ringmaster..gluing up, sanding to shape and then 10 coats of finish, with a rub and 2 coats of wax…incredible look…it stands approximated 11 inches tall and 7 inches at the widest point…I’ve also put a glass insert inside so it can be used as a flower vase piece …thanks for looking…all comments really appreciated

I’ve heard of the ringmaster, although I’m not real familiar with how it works.

This vase is quite striking, and the finish looks great.

Very nice. Walnut, I’m assuming? I like the zig-zag pattern of the sapwood/heartwood variations.
