I am making this
This is the pattern I am following. No pictures of what I am making some old fart didn't take any pictures of the first try. Any who what I did was cut out each piece of the side runs 5 in all on the scroll saw 3/4" Thick x 1 1/2" Wide x 5" Long, turned the top and bottom but left the top whole I need the center point yet. Spaced them 3/4" between each rail drilled up from the bottom base with #6 3/4" screws made a cap lip for the top that the rails set in around the circle, now the fun part I put the unit in the lathe between centers using only pressure to hold the top on, full face shield and a piece of plywood as an apron protecting my chest, now if everything is centered it should spin balanced and not explode into the shop from rotation. SO I stand to the right and flip the switch and presto a smooth spin, now the good part I did the indentations into the vase very gentle on the touch as to not have the gouge do a wall stop on me and hello duck you fool.Ya know what it turned down with out issues, and I used foam sanding blocks to sand it down, turning out nice, I plan on other vases for my online shops. Plan on making the flowers also.
An empty coffee cup is just wrong.
