This vessel is made from alder, paduak, maple, and black veneer. The top half was a bit of challenge but it came out surprisingly well; no gaps in the joints. Approximately 7 1/4” x 4 1/4”. Finished with several coats of laquer, then wet sanded to 1500 grit, and 3 coats of carnauba wax.

Excellent work Julian and a beautiful result. I like that you used a stave construction. I know this was probably necessary to accommodate the star feature, but it also gives a very clean look to the vessel.

Really striking!
Great wood choices.
Incredibly well done.
