  • 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 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.

                    Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                    Thanks for posting Carole, Depending on what other time consuming distractions I have I might just have to do a wavy bowl.

                    There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                    Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                    In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
