Default A successful "redesign" opportunity

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.

C&C's welcome....

While all the second generation segments look excellent, all the higher segments also look excellent.

Well done, and it looks as if you planned all that!

Geezz, for something that was segmented to be a bowl, I reckon I would have troubles segmented it deliberately to be a vase to come up that good, great job on it. The pen looks great too, congrats...!

Cheers
George

There are no mistakes in wood turning, only re-design opportunities.
