Made this segmented vessel for a Kansas State fan. He is a hard core KSU fan but didn’t have anything like this in purple, so I remedied that. This turned out (no pun intended) to be one of his most loved KSU colored items. Glad he loves it!
I hadn’t seen a segmented vessel dyed yet so I thought I would try it. I want to thank Lumber Jock “trifern” for his inspirations and tips on applying dyes to turnings.
Made from good ol’ pine, dyed with black and purple dye, wipe-on poly and hand rubbed wax.
Thanks for viewing.

I really like the idea of die being used on a segmented piece. I must admit; I had not thought of that…. your opening up some new worlds for me.

Good job on this. You have ‘elevated’ the pine wood.
