I started out with plans to make a bowl with a 2nd generation feature ring in the design of Crown of Thorns for Easter. Imagine my surprise when I glued it up and the diameter was only half as large as planned.
Yep, through a slight (by half) miscalculation, a redesign opportunity opened up. The bowl became a flower vase, but I still like it.
I had one extra segment left over, so it became a pen. Now I have a matching set for a conversation starter.
