This No 1 of three Gene Bottle type vessels I had orders for. This is about 15” tall to the top and has
red perspex spacers. I had to use instant glue to attach the perspex to the plywood and then Titebond 111 to glue rings together, got a bit messy along the way. Made with 144 plywood segments and 144 spacers plus base, top and lid. Pic 2 I placed a LED torch inside to show off the perspex. SOLD.
