Yes another large beech vase. Approx 23 inches tall. Again this will travel with me this winter and I will embellish it. This piece was almost 40 pounds when I started. Yes I had help get it up to the bandsaw and the lathe

Your sure make them big Ron, your going to be busy down in AZ this this lot. Like the look of Stefen’s one on your last post. Does that hollowing system enable you the vase completely hollowed?

Lovely piece Ron.
Please show us the finished vase when done.


-- 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.

Bob the hollowing system lets me go the entire length of the vase. I could go deeper but I am running out of lathe
Need a bigger toy
Yes I will post the finished piece It might not be until spring next year This will travel with me to embellish

cant wait to see this beautie develop Ron, that’s a fair chunk of timber in the blank. Being Beach it should come up real nice. I see you have the right Beast to turn it with :)
