    Thick Burr Oak Vase

    What, did you expect a thin vase from me??

    I made this as a prototype for some awards I will be making this winter and it was well recieved so I'm will be making 6-12 of similar ones with some verbage burned in where the solid black line is. It's about 15" tall and 6" at the top rim. Still weighs a ton and will no doubt split some more, but the person paying for the awards is quite excited about that! Whatcha all think??

    (sorry for the blurry cell pics)

    Nice shape that shows off the oak grain very well.

    Not a fan of thick but that looks great Jeff. The grain really stands out.

    Cool form, and I really like the grain on the flat top part. You might want to hollow out the bottom a bit and fill it with lead, though. You don't want that thing blowing away in a breeze or anything.

    Thanks guys...my daughter picked it up last night and told me it was too heavy! Maybe I should start making them thin.
