This is a significantly less traditional item that I made a while ago. I had this piece of oak that wasn’t quite big enough for anything useful but was too thick to justify cutting in half for regular stock. So I cut it into two pieces length wise and took one piece and carved this case into it. I then found a pretty piece of wood that was roughly the same width and laminated it in-between the oak. I think it is Padauk but I’m not 100% sure.

The hole is about 2.5” D and it is roughly six inches tall.

It took .. a while … to cut out the vase but I was also using a 1mm cutter. so there’s that. It was done more for playing around with the art than intending to sell them because it is not time effective (at least on this tiny scale)

Nice work. I think a CNC router might be fun.
