    Vase?

    I wanted to do something more than just a bowl, This is my first try at this shape. I do like it, The form may not be just perfect but I am happy with it. It is Mesquite about 6 X 3.

    Very nice piece, Dennis. I can see some minor tweaks I'd do to the form, but you took a beautiful piece of wood and made it beautifuler. That's a great looking finish, too. What did you use?

    Hi,

    All I can do is repeat what everybody else said---I like the shape, I like the wood, I like the finish.

    The finish does go well with the wood and the shape.

    I wish I could do as well. I will too, someday.

    Enjoy,

    Jim
