OK this is an attempt at a vase. So far so good I think for the first full size vase?? The center is hollowed out about 9” deep roughly 2 1/8” in diameter. The outside – well I just spun it until I didn’t feel like spinning it anymore and made a cool abstract shape.
Now I just need to find an insert to make it able to hold water. A piece of PVC or pipe with a cap on it, glass tube. IDK yet.
I have plans for more vases, but I need to find the right pieces to make it work. Pending some shipments from one of our suppliers – all sorts of fun secrete locations and hunting/gathering missions to find the perfect burls! All I can say is there’s some really fun (scary) times ahead with the lathe spinning some objects that really shouldn’t be rotated at a high RPM let alone stabbed with sharpened metal spikes while this twirling is in progress.
