    Very attractive, Chas. That beech has great figure.

    Man, that it nice!
    I like that it is not so glossy - what finish is it?

    Oh dear, afraid you might be disappointed if you saw it in the flesh then, it has a high gloss buffed Carnuba Wax finish.

    Deliberately, made a point of suppressing highlights during photography because they swamp the figuring.

    No problem - I just happen to prefer the less glossy finishes.

    My wife thinks just the opposite - go figure...

    I love the photo then.

    It's a nice piece, regardless. The figure is wonderful.

    Chas,

    Please don't yell at me! did you drill the inside?

    I really like the vase. You give me so many new ideals. I like this play with the layers of contrast.

    I ask you not to yelled because on another forum people have made it clear that a "proper" vase is hollowed out with a proper turning tool.

    I disagreed with the word "proper" because I drill bud vases, weed vases etc. and like them and they sell.

    They would not relent in being "proper"

    Paul, There's nothing wrong with drilling out the bulk of wood in a Vase in my opinion, it's the easist way to do it so why ever not, just hone your skills in the reduced time it takes to tool out the final shaping.

    Have a look at This UK Forum WIP of mine doing just that.

    However this Vase is made the same way as the Pencil Pots in previous post, section at a time, so hollowing is carried out as you build.

    No need for expensive hollowing tools.

    Chas that is a really nice vase. You have really got this pattern figured out!!!! When I get my lathe in the new shop, this is at the top of the list and if I failed to say so, "thank you very much" for the detailed build list.
