  • 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.

                    I'll go back and try a light emboss, my main intent here was to stand at the other side of the room and watch the pressure gauge from a distance, and see if it would go full force without leaks, so pressing through a 2/4 wasn't really the plan. A pin size leak at 10,000 psi is a very very dangerous...

                    Glad you got repaired and I am intrigued by the embossing idea.

                    So, before I traveled to a larger town to find a place that could help me with my hydraulic hose connection, I took the advice of one of the members here and called around to a few auto-parts stores. The stores I called didn't do that kind of thing, however they directed me to a store here in town that...

                    The auto darkening helmet is a must have in my opinion, especially for the home hobby welders. if you are a pro and do it all the time maybe not.

                    Couldn't agree more Rolf. The helmet has been a game changer for me.
