This is a project I wanted to do for a long time. My LJ friend Bambi posted his stave turning a little while back. Got a top 3. WOW. Checked with him on the jig he used and he sent me pictures. Made mine similar and it worked great. I am kinda proud of how these two came out. I have had this splatted wood for a long while (the mill guy said it was splatted maple maybe) anyway it is very nice. The larger vase is a bit taller and more flared than than the smaller and does not have the walnut inserts but each piece does have a black splat line in it. The wifey soon decided what should fit into each one. Now they are hers. Turned the glued on segmented walnut top and bottom rings same while turning the vase bodys. The last picture shows the half glued bodys being cut to length
on the band saw. Thanks for looking. Questions and comments welcome

Pretty looking vases, Vernon! Looks a lot like a drinking mug I’m pondering coopering together for the beer swap Kenny’s going to run this summer, though I probably won’t have such pretty wood.

That is awesome. My Mother would tell me not to touch them, they are for show…

Those are pretty cool.

Both are outstanding
Larger one with the spalted black appearing to be dividers is a real eye catcher, can’t quit looking at it
Great job on both Vernon

Well done Vernon. I’m sure they are harder to do than they look. I like the utensil one.

Very nice Vernon! That is something I really need to try. Looks like a beautiful way to use those small pieces of scrap I have horded! I might get with you on making the jig, and doing the angle measurements.
