This is one of the largest vases I have turned yet, and one of the coolest. I started this thinking it was going to simply be practice, because I did not expect to find any unusual grain pattern or color. What a nice surprise inside.

The gash on the side was threatening to blow the whole thing open, thank God for super glue! Decided to burn the top and the area around the gash for some contrast.

I always laugh when people ask if they can touch the stuff I make, the last is a picture of just a couple of my product testers in action.

Vase is 13 inches tall and 12 inches at its widest. sidewalls are 1/4 inch

Beautiful vase. I didn’t realize the size until I saw the photo with your child and doggy. Very nice piece with great craftsmanship.

Great job on this. Good shape and for sure an interesting piece of wood. Looks like a daunting turn with all those crack areas.

Well done on the vase.

I also love to use a torch on select pieces of wood.
Some of my select pieces just get the big fire place torch. lol

That’s one of the nicest vases I’ve seen yet, and I’ve seen a lot of them. I like the burning for contrast. Thanks for sharing! :)
