This Rosewood Vase is my first perforated vase, it is 7” H x 7” W. I was shocked when I measured it as I had assumed that it would be taller than it was wide. It sure looked that way.
This was a fun project as it was something different, something unique (at least in my opinion) and from a very stable wood. Rosewood, at present, is my favorite wood to turn! It turns beautifully and because it is an oily wood, it takes a beautiful polish. The perforations took me a day and half to do, the rough sanding another half day, and the final sanding seemed to take forever! When I thought I was finished, the “Boss” came along and said sand it some more, then some more and more! But the final result is worth it! I’m ready to start on my next one but have to do a “request” first.
This was finished with Tung Oil.
