I have to start by saying i had no intention of making this. This project was a culmination of experiments. the first was to turn a delicate sweeping vase shaped bowl, then to die it blue. when that was done it looked nice but of course i had to try to improve on it so i what could i do to it now. After losing a nites sleep over it, it hit me, carve flower petals into it. Ok so i did that now its looking really nice BUT now what do i do with it. Not that i could leave it well enough alone i had to try to improve on it. I lost another nites sleep when it hit me ( i do my best thinking when im suspossed to be sleeping) It needs leaves so i basicly did the same process to make the leaves. I then polyed the whole thing and waxed it. Every once in a while you even impress yourself, for me it was this project. I had a lot of fun with this and hope to make more. Oh by the way the wood is maple.
