This was done with the scrollsaw and consists 12 rings 1/4” thich plus the 2 top layers. Has a glass vase insert so it can hold water for natural flowers. Vase is 12” tall and 7” at widest point, the bottom rings were cut at 22 degrees and top layers at 45 degrees.

Unique design. You proved that plywood can be used in so many ways. It seems this beautiful vase needed a lot of hand sanding. Congratulations.

Thanks for the comments, new at scroll sawing plywood but it sure is fun. Your spot on Sam, lots of hand sanding hence the dimples and paint on the next one.

Nice piece, Bob. You are getting to master that process very well!. No end to how tall you can go that way. You won’t need a long boring bar to finish the inside!!

Cheers, Jim
