Black Cherry "OATS" Segmented Vase Form
3 in. x 3 in. x 3 in.
"OATS" is an acronym I came up with to describe
the off angle triangle stave segmented blank I "discovered" in 2004. A very similar variation had been done in England
more than a decade before, but I was totally unaware of that when I began to claim my "original idea."
on, this is the smallest piece like that that I have done. It is made up of black cherry staves, maple and walnut veneers
and a walnut base. It is finished with one or two coats of sanded polyurethane and micro-crystalline "Renaissance"
