    Brothers vase

    Jeffs post got me to thinking(that could be dangerous)That i never showed the maple vase i did for my brother.It didn't turn out like i wanted,but it is what it is.If you remember i couldn't get to the bottom like i wanted.Well it was to thick at the bottom and got a couple small cracks, also the top warped a little. so i just reworked it.It ended up being 10x 3 1/4. thanks
    Steve

    I like it, Steve. It's a shame the original shape didn't survive the drying, but you did a good job of salvaging it.

    I too like the "I Dream of Gennie" style vase but the final turning is just as good. How did you dry it? I have used Alcohol to dry my wet turnings with great success and little or no cracks or warps.

    I know there are some nay sayers here but It Do work for me.

    good job saving it ........
    First you have to learn the rules - Beginner
    Then you have to learn advanced rules - Professional
    Then you disregard the rules - This takes you to the master level................

    Larry i have a 5 gal bucket with lid, that has 3 gals of dna. i let them sit in it for at least 24 to 48 hrs. Then i'll put them in a paper bag for a couple weeks before turning. that's what i've told to do so if i'm doing something wrong please let me no.
