Vase Comission Delivered

In the last post I gave you a teaser photo of 1 of 3 vases that a couple who are great friends ask me to make and deliver before Thanksgiving. I delivered them this past Wednesday, just under the deadline. All three are oak brought down in a wind storm locally at Wakonda Club. The husband of this couple is in charge of the grounds at the club so him getting the oak back is all the more special.

The tallest and smallest vases are 2 pieces turned seperately and then epoxied to the bases. The tallest vase is 22" tall and the small one is about 14". Due to time constraints and not yet having a good steady for longer pieces, these are not hollowed completely. Instead they have a 2.5" cylinder cut out with a forstner bit. This allows a space to add dried flowers or something similar. They are very happy with them and I am very happy to have had the opportunity to make them.
