Vase

Vase

Wood: Maple Burl
Stain: None
Finish: Lacquer
Hours: 1.5
Size: 8"t

More Info
A while back I came across a huge maple burl on the side of the road. For for the heck of it, I knocked on the owner's door and asked him to think of me if the tree was ever to be destroyed. I could hardly believe it when he said he wanted it taken down right away and was actively searching for someone to do it. Part of that 1,200 burl is in this vase.

More Info
This is a simple project that nicely displays a quilt that my wife bought in Lancaster Pennsylvania. It attaches to the wall with "key hole" slots and the quilt is clamped in place with a small piece of cherry trim. I couldn't find this in any store so did what any woodworker would do... I designed and built it myself.

Size: 8"t x 4"w

More Info
This vase was among the first I made with 400 lbs of maple burl I acquired (for free) in 1998. This piece didn't have much figure to it so I decided to turn it while green. The results were pretty good. I used a microwave drying technique found in WOOD magazine.
