    Segmented vase

    At last after four weeks celebrating carnival I found the time to finish a segmented vase.
    This thing is 8'' in diameter, and 12'' tall.
    Woodspieces, Grenen and meranti.
    Finished with two layers blanc transparent stain.
    Thanks for looking.

    Ad, that is a beautiful piece. The names of both woodpieces are totally new to me. Which wood is the brown one?

    I don't see too many segmented pieces in the forum. I hope that will change though.

    Thank you Mohammad. you can compare Grenen with yellow pine, it has a very nice smell, the brown one is Meranti (hard wood), this woodspieces comes from Asia.
    Used here for windows, doors, etcetera. Creates a lot of brown dust.

    Very nice work Ad! Great form and really beautiful wood color combinations. Really like the design and size! All the segment work had to take a long time - but it sure looks like it was worth the effort! Again - very nice work!

    Very nice job, Ad. I like the pattern you created in the middle. Looks like a lot of work, but worth it.
