Ambrosia Maple Spiral Fluted Vase

By Wes Jones - Woodturner - Lawrenceville, GA, Woodturner at in Lawrenceville, GA.

This large vase was turned from "Ambrosia" maple.  The tree was attacked by the Ambrosia beetle creating the interesting streaks of brown and gray color.  The vase stands 20 3/4" tall.  After the vase was hollowed, the spiral flutes were laid out and hand-carved over the span of a month.  It was finished with a hand-rubbed oil finish and then polished.
