    Mahogany "open" vase

    Here's another piece I meant to post a few days ago and forgot.

    Mahogany, about 4 x 6.5, with a buffed DO finish. It looked a little too "plain jane" so I tried spicing it up a bit by inserting sycamore plugs. Used a Oneway Drill Wizard to drill the holes opposite one another and at graduated positions.

    Nobody gets between me and my ice cream......

    Mark that is a good looking vase. I like the sycamore plugs. Really makes it stand out.

    Nicely done, Mark. I keep thinking of dice (as in gambling) when I look at this piece. I could see some fancy Yahtzee cups in the future.

    Mark, that is exceptionally nice.
    The plugs are an excellent addition to a beautiful vase, adding even more to its character. Well done indeed!

    Very neat, I like that

    How is the Oneway Drill Wizard to use?

    I remember when it came out, I thought "Neat, I wonder how useful it really is.... "

    Cheers!

    Stu,
    It's totally boring.

    Actually it's very easy to set up and use, IF you (1) buy a drill that you can dedicate to it, saving yourself that much setup time--I use a cheapo drill that I already had lying around, and (2) use sharp bradpoint bits.

    Of course, the Drill Wizard presupposes an indexing system on your lathe.
