This was the first vase I attempted to make with vertical segments milled on the table saw and band saw. After gluing up it was so rough and plain I tossed it aside and forgot about it. (about 3 years ago). Finally decided to sand it down smooth and burn a 3d pattern on it.

Great piece.
I like that idea of getting curved forms out of flat stock. Very cool vase.
The pattern must have been difficult putting on that surface.

Actually the pattern was quite easy. I had the vertical lines (16 sections) The horizontal lines were simply made by rotating vase around a pencil tip at proper elevation. Lined up a diamond template reducing size as I went up. Everything else was easily freehanded. It’s 12” high and 5” in diameter

Cool idea for anyone without a lathe. I can imaging all sorts of different shapes that one could make with this technique.

What kind of wood did you use?
