    Sweetgum/Mesquite Vase

    This one is a bit lacking form-wise but I'm happy to salvage anything at all from it.

    This was a save after a disaster when the opening broke out while hollowing and the tenon broke out while re-chucking. I added a Mesquite collar and pedestal to the Sweetgum funnel!

    It's 8 1/2" x 5" finished with my witch's brew and spray Shellac.

    BTW, I go back offshore soon for fourteen days ahd y'all get a break from my turning displays.

    I was wondering when we'd get a break from your amazing turning displays.

    Sweetgum vase looks real sweet.

    Nice save, Cody. I'd admit it might not be the best piece you've ever turned, but especially considering all the trials and tribulations, it came out pretty nice.
