Hard to believe that is 100 % popular, Color contrast is fantastic. Will have to take a second look at the popular that grow here. Actually it is mostly aspen. well done and looks great.

I really like this. I can see how you drilled and cut on a band saw the holes in the sides, but what did you use for the hole for the vase? We sure do not have popular that looks that nice here…in fact, all we can find here is at Lowes and HD, flat boards only. But I have a few pieces of Koa that just might look good.
