This is the finished vase. It is only about 4 inches tall and about 3 inches in diameter. It is a shame that the piece had a crack in it and I had to reduce the diameter and size. The wood is very pretty. Of course the shavings looked good around the bushes.

This is a picture of some shavings from a piece of Box elder I was working on. This wood is very soft and comes off in nice ribbons of colored wood. I usually sweep the floor as soon as I finish a project but I have left it for a couple of days since I like the colors so much. Today is the day that I will put the shavings out as mulch. The second picture is of the piece mounted on the lathe. It is too bad the piece had a crack in it and I had to make a much smaller piece. I will post a picture of it in the next post. Stay tuned,
