    Walnut Vase

    Found a old and very dry piece of walnut on the garage floor recently and this is what came out of it. It's about 11" tall and 6" wide at its widest. I left a "natural side" towards the base. The walls are thicker in that area but from the top down to there the walls are 1/4". Finish is danish oil and then 3 or 4 coats of rattle can laquer.

    Nice job Jeff. The natural edge really adds some character.

    That is a good looking piece Jeff. The NE sure does set if off.
