This is my first attempt at a weed vase thanks to the inspiration from LJ Stefang ( Thanks, Mike!! ).
The vase and holder were made out of female box elder but the base had the majority of red in it. I wanted it to be suspended and it came out close but the center does not touch.

It was turned oval with a tenon on both sides, cut in half, hollowed and glued back together.

The vase is 6 1/2” diameter and 1 3/4” thick It is finished with satin lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Wow! That’s Nice!

Is the female box elder the only box elder that has the red highlights?

What’s a weed vase? Do you actually put weeds in it? Anyhow, it’s really beautiful.

Wonderful piece.
Is that where one hides their weed?
Can’t figure out why it’s not in the top 3.

WOW, both technical skill, and butt kicking wood, makes for an Oh WOW kinda project.

Nice job Jim. I’m with Jerry, not quite sure what a weed vase is, but suspect it may be an offhand use of the word flower. Really doesn’t matter though, the most beautiful flower, or the ugliest weed is going to look great in that piece.

Looks good, Jim!

Being a WEED vase, does that mean flowers are not allowed? :)

Thank you all for the nice comments. I guess it should really be a dried weed vase, but the way it is lets the imagination run wild!!

Hi Lew. yes, only the female box elder gets red in it. I learned that from old Harvey Irish of the HA Irish tree cutting service. Hi Jerry it is for dried weeds. I would have put some in but they are all green right now.

Hi Joe. I’ll skip cutting a patch of the back 40 and then pick some of the weeds and put them in here !!some of the weeds have pretty flowers on them…you’ll see!!

cheers, Jim
