Thats a nice looking vase. I have heard of using plywood for segmented bowl turning but have never tried it. Does it kill the edges of your turning tools? I would like to see you do a how to blog on this.

I love plywood art! Plywood isn’t just for subfloor anymore! It can be really beautiful and you certainly did a great job!

Plywood is no different on tools than oak or walnut. I just use a hone to keep the edge.

Holy crap-oly! I need to go buy some plywood! (And some talent…)

If I made one of these, my wife would expect me to buy her plywood flowers, like every week!
