A new vase from fresh plum wood

April 20, 2017

A piece of fresh plum wood remained after I had used the other half of the log. I did not know what to do with it but in the end I decided to make a vase whose height is 22 cm, base diameter is 10cm, top diameter is 8 cm, and the opening is 5 cm. It will dry for several months in a sack and thus the dimensions will change a little due the wood deformation while drying. The vase will be able to hold water as it will have an inserted ceramic or glass cylinder. When tung oil is applied, plum wood will reveal its beauty.
