    Oak NE Vase

    This is from a log I left outside for over a year. I made my first bowl from the same score of logs. I also attached a pic of that. Created some spalting and darkened the wood too. Some punky parts, but loaded CA in it ended up looking pretty good. Stands 9" tall and 5" wide at the rim. Finish is danish oil and paste wax buff. Sorry the pic has some shaddows and a little blury. Still working on my photo skills. Critques and comments encouraged.

    Looking good, Jeff. Those uneven edges can be a challenge, huh? Critique-wise, I'd suggest trying to work your way to smaller diameter feet and thinner wall. Both will come in time.
