10” high vase scroll sawn plywood vase, dimpled colored with copper auto paint and then a layer of Liming wax, sanded back so the wax remained in the dimples then two coats of glass polyurethane Pic 3 shows the layer I fitted inside to hold the flower.

Here, Bob, you’ve used the plywood as material only because its effect is hidden by the paint. My first thought it was kind of metal vase. It is beautiful and artistic vase but I would not take the real effect of the PW away. If it was your purpose to do so, then you have done a very good job.

Sam, after all the hand sanding on the first vase, dimpling and covering the ply was an easy way out, I did get the effect I was after but need more work to get the bronzing look. Thanks for the comments Sam, Dave and Monte.

This vase has a look to it that is very eye catching. Nice work. Could I ask how you get the dimples in it?

Dave, using a dremel with the a round burr is quick and easy method that works for me. Thanks for the comments.

Thanks for the tip Bob. I guess it will take a lot of patience too.

Lovely and unique bowl! Can’t believe it’s plywood. Like the colors and the textures. Amazing work!
