This the third vase I turned with the same idea and design. It is made of 12 rings and a solid base vertically laminated plywood, as shown in photo 3. Glued in 3 stages, bottom half, the base and 4 rings, the second half, 5 rings and the neck. All rings made of 6 segments that make 65 segments. I turned each stage from inside before glued them together to turn the vase from outside in one piece.

This is really cool. I have often looked at plywood thinking I should seg it and turn it. Thanks for posting.
Very cool.

Great idea and excellent execution. Using the plywood vertically certainly creates and interesting piece. Favorited!

Sam…I think your turned plywood design really came out great. It is obvious that you put a lot of hours into it and the results show…
What type of plywood did you use? I tried a sculpted box out of plywood a good while back and ended up throwing it away because it had too many hollow spots in the ply I used. I might attempt it again if I get some quality 3/4 Baltic birch or some sort of quality ply.

-- Every step of each project is considered my masterpiece because I want the finished product to reflect the quality of my work.
