This is a small What Not vase turned from a nice piece of maple. This piece actually flew off the lathe three times while working on it. This is what’s left, hence the name. It measures 4” tall by 4.5” wide. It is finished with Seal-A-Cell, Wipe-On Poly and Briwax.

I think I’d call it “indestuctable” because it looks great, especially for flying off the lathe 3 times. Very nice Joe!!! You do great work. Whats become of the offer from Dennis?

Another very nice turning Joe. It looks like it’s becoming second nature to you. Very nice.

Joe, that’s another great turning. I love the grain…the spalting combined with the 3D effect of the striping.

Thanks for posting it.

Another beauty, Joe.

I don’t know much about turning, but I know when you get a piece that keeps flying off the lathe, it’s time to invite someone you don’t like into the shop to watch you work! <eg>

Looks great. Where do you keep getting the inspiration of the next turning?

Joe, as usual, this is another beautiful piece. You really brought out the character and the grain of the wood with this piece.

Thanks for sharing this.

Nice one Joe. Have a look on my blog on pen finish, it might be of interest.
