Come Sail With Me

Steve Howland's avatar Steve Howland

This is a segmented vase I made on my antiquated lathe. Woods of different species were glued together to form the sailboats and the compass rose along the top. The vase is made of 18 separate rings (including the sailboat feature ring). Each ring is made of 16 segments (except the sailboat ring, it has 12). The woods I used are cherry, walnut, maple, bloodwood, and paduk. I then gave it a lacquer finish.
