    Carob Vase

    Just catching up on some pics of things I turned last year...this one is carob, about 5" tall and 3 1/2" wide. Nothing real fancy, but I thought it was a pretty piece of wood. This was salvaged by another turner from a tree trimmer in Los Angeles. I think it was finished with Formby's Tung Oil Finish (don't recall for sure), then buffed and waxed. It has a crack or two in it, but nothing bad enough for me to worry about. It's not like I was planning to store liquids in it or anything.

    C&C welcome as always.

    That's a great looking piece of wood. Very vibrant colors. Nice piece. I've eaten carob but never turned it. Looks like it turns better than it tastes....

    That's a beauty. It's begging for a handle though. The shape is very 'pitcheresque'

    Beautiful piece of wood and the simple flowing form is oriented just right to take advantage of it.
