Hello

This afternoon I decide to make a wood vase for my wife.

I need a newspaper, a piece of wood (1.20 m), a lathe, some glue, two gouges, some sanding papers.

A lot of pleasure and a lot of afraid not to break the wooden vase.

Comments welcome

Thanks for looking

Edit : Add a new picture for Serge and all persons interested with

Hi Jack,
Your vase is awesome. You made another great step towards being a master in woodturning.
A nice see-through color too! Great Job. Congratulations!
Question 1: How did you hold the vase in the lathe for the final external turning?
Question 2: What do you think your wife will put in it?

Best,

Serge

I think this came out great, don’t take this the wrong way but it looks like a giant clothes pin :) Its a very cool and unique design, and executed very well .
