Wink Vase, ears or no ears.

I made this from some walnut that was .90" thick. It has been too cold to go to the garage and use the planer. I PM'd Carole for info on blade angle and she told me that with a 3/8" ring spacing and this thickness to use a 24 deg. angle. I used a #5 PSR blade from the sample pack I bought from Mike. 1 blade for each half. Man I love those blades. My board wasn't wide enough to do the full bowl that was in the magazine so I decided to do a vase. I then thought of the ears. Thus ears or no ears, that is the question.

Both are great, but my preference is with the ears. It gives more character to the vessel and balances it off more.

Ears add character!

Nice piece!

Scrollin' with an Ex-21


I WAITED patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
Psalm 40:1-3

How can it hear you if it doesn't have ears?
