Quite a while ago I turned a piece of laburnum into a simple cylinder and then put it away for drying. Some time later, I picked up another piece of laburnum and turned it into a shape that looks like a tall vase, but with a tip instead of a foot. Initially the idea was to do some collaboration with a blacksmith to create a stand for it, but it turned out the blacksmith wanted a detailed technical drawing and then wanted to charge me £50.00 per hour of workshop time. So I dropped that idea.
As time went by, I kept looking at the cylinder and the footless vase, and eventually the idea formed in my head: A piece of bogwood left over from my stepson’s long abandoned fish tank as a base, and two similar but different shapes placed on it.
So here we are: Laburnucopia. You will not see any better laburnum texture anywhere. polished and finished in wax, this is a nice showpiece for any room.
