I wanted to make my wife a vase for Christmas and wanted something different. I found a design by fellow LJ (Fabian). He said it would be no problem for me to copy his design. I chose White Limba because of the grain. I first drilled a hole for the test tube holder and cut the design on the band saw. The outer sides curve around and overlap on top, with a hole aligned in each. As I was finish sanding the top side broke, so I decided one hole would work, so I cut the top side back. Then the other side broke, so I cut out a piece of black walnut and inverted that and turned a piece of Bubinga for the test tube to rest in. Finished with Varnish. I hope she will like my design.
