  • Dry Vase

    This 1950's retro vase has been cut from Poplar and Cedar. It is approx 7 inches tall and 4 inches wide. This vase is set up to be used as a dry vase. Sanded to 400 grit and then finished with bees wax and mineral oil mixture.

    Nice, DW, as usual. Kinda reminds me of a lava lamp.

        Nice work. Making a scrolled bowl or vase is on my 2012 cut list.

        BTW...I had never heard the term dry vase. I had always heard them referred to as weed pots. See def below.

        "What is a weed pot? That's a very fair question? My definition is: "any vessel for holding a single stem of grass or weed, that isn't a normally accepted vase shape". It's that simple. If it's capable of holding a scrap of grass, a cotton tail or a ear of wheat, then it fits the bill, regardless of shape, or material."

              Beautiful piece of work I've never done many of the specialty items you can do on a scroll saw like intarsia, bowls, boxes, cpmpound cutting, etc. I am mainly a stick-in-the-mud kinda guy, doing mostly fret work. However, I truly admire those that do!

                Nice, the vase or I should say one similar, is also on my possible pieces to try list once I get more experience. Nice work.

                    I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

                    That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

                    The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                    Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
