Default Double-Swirl Vase

This WIP is really in the finial stages. It's made from Red Oak and Poplar. I started is project sometime ago but with the hot weather and other things that came up I just wasn't able to work on it. This vase is from Carole's book and gave me a bit of a fit in making the top section of it. From glue up to sanding. It's said that the third time is the charm and it proved to be true it think I have a nice outside profile. I still need to sand the inside top, glue the top on and do the finish sanding. The sanding is on hold until my new sanding sleeves arrive. I picked out poplar that had a nice amount of green in it, I think it add a nice contrast to the red oak. I finished the inside of the vase before I glues it up just a little extra touch. As always any and all comments are welcome.

Thanks WD and Carole for those nice comments. I did the top ring sanding a little different this time and started out with a 2" spindle sander and then to a 3". I also made a high 90 fence which I think gave me better control. The sanding sleeves I ordered have not been shipped yet so I'm at a stand still. But I'll post more as I get more done. Oh you dint have to wait until I get more done to tell me how terrific I am.

Dan, I've done the same thing--starting off with a 2" spindle, then going to a 3". Gives me more feeling that I know what I'm doing.

And oh, OK, yes, you are terrific!

Hay Mike thanks for the comment. I'm not going to stain it, just 3 or 4 coat of clear shellac that should really bring out the color and grain of the red oak and poplar. Carole I also found that using the 90 fence I was able to get a more even sanding since the top and the bottom of the rings were flat. Oh and thank for thinking I'm wonderful, I think you are too and so very helpful.

I really like the natural color and was hoping you would leave it as such. Can you post a picture after you shellac it?
