    Maple Burl Vase

    Here is a small vase I turned out of Maple Burl that Mike Smith threw this piece in to see what I could come up with. It is 5" high with the pedestal and 3 1/2" across. Sanded to 400 grit and finished with rattle can lacquer. Walnut base dyed with india ink. Turned out pretty nice for a small piece.

    Bernie great looking piece. Just a thought but did you ever think about putting a lid on this? Wish i could find something like that burl to play with.

    You did a great job with a tricky piece of wood, Bernie.

    Thanks for the kind comments. Stephan I had thought about a lid but just didn't have any burl left or anything I thought would look good with it. So just left it.
