I started this project with the intention of creating a decorative outside on the Vase.

I showed my wife before I took it off the lathe, and immediately my plans changed. You can’t cover that up, it’s too pretty. Apparently.!!!

So off to plan be. Which is glue up a block of builders pine and turn another vase.

This one had to be finished off and sanded to 400. The finish is Wipe on poly, 3 coats.

Finished size is 7in x 5in wide.

Thank you for looking and as usual C & C are welcome.

That is really nice Bob, like the way the knots make the feature. I firmly believe wives see things differently to blokes but glad yours changed you to plan B. Nice turning and finish.

Nice Vase! The wife is right! Bet your’re glad you asked her. The grain and knot’s give it a uniqueness all it’s own. So a quick look won’t be enough to absorb all of its beauty for this piece. Nice work as always Bob!

Nice job on this one Bob Kinda looks like some Norfolk Pine that took some fertility drugs.
