I got an idea for a stave and went for it. It came out pretty cool, I think anyway. Was fun to turn and that’s the main thing. This is my second vessel I put a CA glue finish on. I really like it; it’s fast and comes out deep and smooth.

Thanks for viewing.

That is so cool. Wonderful turning. I can just see how deep that finish is, but could you send that to my house so I can touch it. :)

Beautiful vessel. I have often thought that segmented stave work is still fairly unexplored. Your vessel is really unique. Very well done.

Beautiful vessel and the contrasting wood looks great…is that plywood you used in the feature rings and vertical strips?...Very nicely turned.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.
Jim and Dave, the main part of the stave is Birch. The blue and gold wood is actually pen blank material.

Kelly, I would be happy to have you touch it, but it is at an art gallery now.

Thanks for looking.
