« Part 4: Turning the bottom half Part 5 of Segmented vase series Part 6: Finished »

It’s been a few days since I worked on this vase. Today I sanded the inside and then glued the two halves together. When the glue set, I finished turning the outside. Still need to turn (enlarge) the hole on the top.

This project was turned almost entirely with my 1/2” bowl gouge. I had some trouble using this tool at first, but with practice I now enjoy how it cuts.
The figured maple really looks nice.

Far out. That looks cool! Alot of gluing. I love the red contrast and the fact that you did it in two parts.

-- Andy Halewoodworker. You can't finish if you don't finish. So finish it, because finish is everything.
