This is a spalted maple and ebony vase I finished this week. Its about 10 inches tall and 4 inches at its widest. Total assembly time was about 16 hours. Im looking for honest critics’ and opinions for experiences turners. I would like to sell my work on a regular basis but dont know how much somrthing like this might be worth. Does anybody out there sell there wood turnings? Looking for some good advise. Thanks. TSW.

I don’t know what it’s worth, but Man is that nice! I really like how the spalting goes with the ebony. Great work :)

It depends on how much you value your time is what I have been finding out. People will pay a lot of money for quality work. It is that everyone is so quick to buy at Target or Wal-mart. You really need to create your Market. I have been selling two tear bowls that are made from recycled wood that take about 1.5 to 2 hours to make for $60.00. I am hoping to be getting $80.00 by the summer. For the right customer I bet you could easily get $300.00 and as your name gets out $400.00.

Great looking work also. I love how the Ebony pulls out the Spalting in the maple.
