This one is 13” tall and has a glass insert (pic 3) which must make it a vase but added the dome top as it could
be displayed as an ornamental vessel. 132 plywood segments, love playing with this stuff it is so easy to work with. SOLD.

Fantastic what you did here. When I read “Plywood Ornamental Vase” I imagined something squarish or maybe a hexagon shape, so the pics really took me by surprise. This looks almost like some intricate inlay work. Really nice!

Thanks for the comments, don’t know about a video Monte it is straight forward segmenting and letting the
plywood do it’s stuff. Couldn’t think of another name for it Ted, can be used as an ornament or a vase.
Hope you all have a great X’mas.

Jim, this was 24mm Baltic Pine Plywood marine ply. Have learnt from experience that the better grade plywood have very few or no voids. I have been lucky enough to collect some good size cut-offs from a boat builder.
