This vase is made of 150 pieces, give or take a few. and completely walnut. starting with sapwood, going to darker heartwood, and the top ring is nearly black burl. Added a small band of turquoise to the top for zing. Wife insisted I use 50 shades for the title.

That is really Beautiful, I love Walnut and you used it to perfection.
I love the zing as well, Bentwood Walnut Rings with Turquoise inlay are my most requested item!
Super Duper Job!
Thank you for sharing.

Stunningly beautiful bowl! Like the different shades of walnut mixed with the black burl and the turquoise makes a great accent. Impressive work!
