This maple vase gave me fits when I roughed it out as it was so wet it just gummed up the cutters and refused to cooperate! Finally got it roughed out, soaked it in DNA and set it aside for when I wanted to turn something that would totally frustrate me!
Well, frustrating or not I liked the form and decided to finish it so I could submit it to a local juried art show that is coming up very soon.
Maple Vase, 10 Ό high x 4 at widest diameter x 1/8 thick, sanded to 320 grit and has several coats of Minwax Wipe-On Gloss Poly. The vase is actually full of small curl but the photos did not capture that effect.
