On this one I wanted to see what would happen if I cut a hole in the side of the vase and then shaped the partial circles. The outcome isn’t quite what I had in my head, But I am happy with the outcome. My wife sais it looks like aliens teeth. I can live with that.

Woods used: ambrosia maple, poplar, walnut. The finish used is wipe on poly, buffed and waxed. I described in this post how I did it.

Make sure to screw a strip of wood to the base when cutting these suckers into rings, I thought I could do without on this one, and it didn’t work out so well. I completely trashed the blade, and ruined the top ring. Lesson learned. (again)

Looks great, yes I had the same experiance years ago trying to cut something round, took me several times before I learned. I did screw a square plate to my vase. The variation in this one is great, original as usual.
