    That's very cool, Tom. I also like the little segmented vase.

    Tom have you ever seen the roses that are made from the curlies of a handplane? Yours are great and like Vaughn, the vase is outstanding in its own right!!

    Here is a quick explanation. Should send you on your way! My wife got one from a coworker that she helped out when the co worker's husband was being a butt head. So I made her a weed pot for it, we bought the coworker a wooden rose and I made her a weed pot. Anyway, with your talents, if this interests you, look forward to seeing your wooden roses in the near future!!!
