Default Pine and Bloodwood vase

I cut this vase from a pine glued up board and a piece of 1/2 in blood wood. Sealed with Tung oil and top coated with shellac. This dry vase is 6 inches tall and 5 inches wide.

The grain of the pine contrasted against the bloodwood make this piece really stand out. Your shaping is spot on.

Really great work!

Note: I really hate to interject this, but, from my experience with turning segmented wood bowls & vases --- Pine is a softwood of low density and bloodwood is a hardwood of really high density. The reason I point this out is because wood is an active medium. Even coated wood absorbs & releases some moisture. Softwood absorbs and releases faster than hardwood. Consequently, softwood will expand and contract faster than hardwood.

When laminating woods, for my turned bowls, I try to keep wood densities constant. When I laminated hardwoods & softwoods together, the varied expansion and contraction of the different densities has caused cracks and breaks in the joints between the varied densities.

Usually the crack or breaks are small enough that I can fill them in with a little thick epoxy glue and they will never be noticed. But sometimes they are just in the wrong place. And I never mix densities when making salad bowls, fruit bowls, or any vessel that may have moisture directly applied to them.

I don't want to steal the thread. Your work is beautiful. I just like for you to be aware what can happen when laminating different woods. It's a pity if, after a year or so, the joints start cracking or breaking do to expansion.

I am aware of the expansion issue and I advertize the vase as being a Dry vase or one that you put a vial in. Other than that I generally use marine spar varnish on the piece if it is going to be subjected to standing water, such as a vase or bowl. Cutting boards and the like get oiled with mineral oil, some of my bowls do also. I also use a bees wax and mineral oil finish from time to time. Thanks for the heads up

Excellent - thanks. It is a beautiful piece and your experience shines through it.

I apologize if I offended.

That is a beautiful Vase!

Thanks Tgiro for the good info too. I had thought about the wood density issue some, but you added a couple aspects I hadn't really put too much thought to. Thanks for sharing!
