Torrey Pines Vase

Filed under: Woodworking — thefusionguy @ 2:14 pm

Here’s a vase for dried flowers I made from the wood from the Torrey pine tree that a neighbor had had removed from his yard. The lip is from a piece of (now rare) Brazilian rosewood I picked up at Penberthy Lumber in Berkeley a very long time ago. The vase has some weight built into the base to keep it from tipping too easily.

The sides are dovetailed together. The thumbnails below are links to larger photos that show the sides ready for assembly; partial assembly; and glue up. The vase is finished with Zinnsler shellac.
