Tri-Coloured Inlay Bud Vase This vase, inlaid with three different types of material, makes this just a bit more challenging of a project.The choice of woods to inlay is up to you.It's a great way of using up some of those small cut off pieces that are just too nice to discard.
Turn the CylinderThe main body of the vase is turned from a piece of oak, approximately 4" x 4" x 6".Rough out the cylinder between centers using a 1 1/4" roughing out gouge.When the piece is square, approach the wood with the flute of the gouge in an upward position.
Take light cuts until you have removed the corners.Then turn the gouge on either side, with the flute trailing the cut.Doing so presents more metal to the wood, which produces a smoother cut.When the corners of the wood are removed, you will have less resistance from the wood.
Do the bulk of your shaping with the roughing out gouge.Use a 1/2" spindle gouge for finer work.Always cut downhill, or from large diameter to small.Turn the cylinder Create the SpigotOnce you have a cylinder, square the ends off with a 1/8" parting tool.
