Spring – Vase and Flowers

I’ve made a few vases lately and I thought they needed a purpose. Since Spring seems to be very slow coming this year, the flowers help to fill the void while I wait to get into my garden!

Flora and fauna are made from basswood. The vase is made from cherry and walnut. The flowers and butterfly wings require a sharp hand plane. I used Lepage’s “Liquid Pro” cyano acrylate glue which works well with wet wood.
