I like lots of your pieces, but this really caught my eye. I’ve been looking at at big branch that I thought would be a good size for vases. Thought I would turn it just after cutting and let your natural drying determine the final shape.

In the first photo the top of the vase looks like it has somewhat straight sides. Is this an illusion in the photo or the result of something you did after turning?

Gorgeous vase, Ron!! From the photo it looks like the top is square. But it is round, right??
Cheers, Jim

Yes it is all round and the shape in the front where it drops down is natural Did nothing but turn this piece, almost hard for me to believe

Very nice Ron, was the Oak wet at all? if so do you reckon it will move to add to the flavour?
Cheers Pete

Beautiful piece Ron,
It really does look square on top, but the edge ups and downs makes that happen.
Love it.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Beautiful vase Ron, the surprise of getting the square look on a round vase is what makes turning so addictive.
Looks great to me..

Yes this was turned wet and it has moved a great deal. Yes it has a great deal of texture and movement
