Lidded Vase

This is another lidded vase that I made out of Cypress wood. I guess I would have to consider this a prototype. I think I will make another one similar but change the design somewhat as I think I can make it look at lot better or least in my minds eye I can.

As I said this is made from Cypress wood and because it a very soft wood It presents some problems that I have not encounter before in turning. However once I get more experience using Cypress I think it will become another good wood for me to use in turning.

I like to hear from other woodturners that have turn Cypress wood and what do you think of it.

This is approx. 4 inches in Diameter and a little over 12 inches high. The final is made from purple heart.
