    Sweetgum Vase

    This is not my design, I've seen it done by a couple of different people. But, I liked it so I copied it. The vase is Sweetgum, 8" tall x 4 1/4" wide and finished with Deft brushing lacquer.

    That is sweet. Did you use power tools to carve out the lip?

    I can't avoid It reminding me somewhat the Alien's eggs in Alien film.

    I used a cheap set of palm chisels that I got to start carving. I'm taking baby steps towards that genre, too.

    Cody - looks really good! Nice hollow form - really nice job on the carving! I haven't gotten into the carving aspect of things, so have no idea of the extra effort required to create a piece like this - but, I do know that I like it and am looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!

    Cody that is a beauty. I like how the carving really sets it off. Great finish.

    Creative and beautiful. "baby step" with the carving? This is very nice work. Get much better and you will be scary masterful.

    Your "baby steps" seem pretty secure to me, Cody. Excellent job on both the turning and the carving.
