I like them all Robbie The bandsawn boxes are great fun to make I especially like the one with the different layers of wood.

I also like the vase you have done a great job on the segmented part of it looks nice and tight joins, how big is it

Nice boxes Robbie the contrasts work nicely, but I am particularly taken by your vase, it's so narrow for the height did you hollow out in sections?

What a marvelous vase! All the stuff look wonderful! You got talent, man! As I understand that vase could be used for artificial flowers, am I right? Do you sell this beauty?
