I made these four vessels for four of my favorite cousins.

The tall ones are made of oak with walnut and purple heart and/or Osage orange feature rings.

The shorter ones are made of cherry, walnut and mahogany with turquoise inlay.

Love the turquoise details. Did you cut the groove for the banding on the lathe, or do by hand?

I used a parting tool on the lathe. for the large turquoise squares I cut them on the individual segments with the table saw before they were glued into rings.

Nice work, and quite a lot of it too! They are all equally well done, but I especially like the ones with turquoise. I don’t see many segmented turnings from oak, and these really look great.

Great looking vessels! I bet I can guess who those 4 cousins would say their favorite cousin is. Congrats on your DT3
