      Well Woody all your years with timber have not been wasted to see something like this in a piece of timber that most would discard.

      It’s a lovely looking piece 🙂

      I had a look at the vase this morning to put another coat of oil on it and it has splits all the way round the mistake I made was bringing it in to photograph it and didn’t take it back out after so the heating dried it out to fast I should have taken it back out into the workshop and it probably would have been OK time to have a play with it to see what I can salvage.

      The splits don’t detract from the beauty in any way IMHO, but this save has definitely enhanced an already beautiful piece.

      The splits were design opportunities and it looks great 🙂
