The top was planned to be another doughnut but I had the plywood the wrong way to get the effect I wanted so rather than waste it I knocked up this rose vase. It is 7 inches tall, with a glass insert. Just another fun project using plywood. The stem is laminated plywood and red gum.

That looks great. Some projects turn out differently than you intended it to be, but ends up something great in the end if you keep going. Your post is a great example, thanks for sharing!

G’day, Bob. Man that is beautiful. The patterns with plywood are limitless and even more so when you add other woods or materials!!. I have been thinking about incorporating black corian into the top of the one I’m laying up

G’day Pete, plywood has me hooked mate will be interesting to see if Jim gets away with using Corian. Your right Jim, plywood never ceases to amaze with patterns but don’t go to heavy with the Corian. Thanks Ivan, Monte and GenWWW looks like you have a promising site started.
