« Part 44: Black Walnut bowl Part 45 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 46: Failed basket illusion »

I knew I was going to make a vase at some point, so I got a kiln dried chunk of hard maple. At the same time, I had to get a few more items and ordered a long/tall glass as an insert and the right sized forstner bit.

There are two ways I complete my woodturning projects, design ahead of time and draw a sample of dimensions, with any embellishments and plan each cut and tool used. Or the other way is to get it round and make it up as I go. This was a bit of a hybrid project where I planned on having the base we ended up with and the tall taper. The rest was winged.

Looking at the finished project, I think I would like to make some changes. Don’t get me wrong, I think it still turned out great, but I think I can do better. Regardless, I’m still having fun and learning a lot.

Here’s this weeks video: Vase for Valentine Day
