A client who owns a gallery ordered two of these Black Walnut vase/plant stands. Since I was already building 2, I batched out 5. The two oak ones were built for friends, (the gallery ended up buying all 3 of the Walnut ones). The design is roughly based on a Woodsmith plan. The tops are Black Walnut on a ply base with a tile grouted in the frame. The oak ones were fumed for 24 hours. All were finished with 2 coats poly-sealer & 3 coats polyurethane.
As I was finishing last week, I had an epiphany and called the huz portion of my friends who are getting the 2 oak stands and suggested that he take his two young sons to the local craft store and have them paint a couple tiles and have them fired for the center of their stands – they could give them to their mom for Mothers day. It all worked out just right and I finished them last night. I’m sure she’ll like them!
