With a wedding anniversary fast approaching, I quickly made a vase with some flowers!!!

The vase is made from Maple and Oak on the band-saw using a WoodSmith template. The flowers are just some scrap Sakura with some padauk inside for an accent.

First time turning flowers… next time I’ll hopefully be more confident to turn them thinner! But, the wedding anniversary gift was a success none the less (no dog house for me this year)

I like the contrast of the oak and maple never thought they would work together so well.
The flowers are well executed. Must have been hard to prevent breakage on such a delicate turn.

What Woodsmith template did you use?

This turned out great. I have this issue and might try my hand at one.

Here’s a link to the issue with the project in it. Also has a link to the template.
