This is from 100 year old crab apple tree. The vase is 12 inches tall and 8 inches wide at the top. We have a banana tree in our yard hear and I love the way the leafs unfold when they grow.

Interesting work on the vase. There’s a lot more there than meets the eye. Good job.

Good looking vase – it is quite apparent to me that you are no new comer when it comes to turning :-)

Ron, that vase is absolutely beautiful.

Thanks for showing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

It’s really a pretty and wonderful bowl. Like the unique and interesting shape. Great wood choice and finish as well. Quite impressive!
