Jim Beebe has been working for a few weeks to understand and master the vagaries of using staves cut at very specific angles to make a vase. It looks like he did get a great final product.


Here are some pictures of my finished staved vase.  It is made from Maple, Walnut, and Walnut veneer.  The inside is finished with fibreglass resin so it will hold water for flowers.  It is 11 inches tall without the lid and finial.  The outside is finished with three coats of wiping poly.
