Still nursing my broken wrist, I got fed up doing almost nothing (plus, I could hear the lathe shouting that it's been lonely) so I decided to see if I could try & make something.

Ended up with this little bud vase. Approx 3" tall & 1.5" across.
Not perfect, but Im pretty happy with it since I still can't move my fingers or wrist properly.
First time I've attempted a vase of any description. :mrgreen:

I think it's spalted beech, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

As always, all comments etc very welcome.

You wos robbed! With permission you could have entered that in this month's comp. , certainly good enough for a point.

Is it spalted beech? doesn't look very spalted to me, or is that the picture? [or me?]

Cheers Mike,

Since it was my first ever effort at a vase, combined with the broken wrist, I didn't think it would be anywhere near good enough to enter it.

The pics aren't very good, but there's not a lot of spalting in it if that's what it is.
I'm not convinced, and a tree surgeon mate of mine reckons it's more likely to be sycamore.
