From a scrap of old walnut and maple cutting board, I just had to try one of these. Saw somebody posted them here and liked the idea. After turning, I cut it on two sides with the band saw. Oil finished. Glass insert is a cigar tube. I happened to find bags of them at an estate sale a while back. They worked great for this purpose.

I like this. It’s different. To me it almost looks square but I know it’s not.

Hello Dee2

It’s perhaps my wooden vase that inspired you

A nice contrast and a good work

Thanks for sharing
