Production of the Large Dizzy Vase
This project started out by making an 8" wide by 1.75" thick by 30" long laminated board that was composed of 121 wood strips of various natural colored varieties. From this laminated board, 96 laminated discs , each 0.100" thick , were cut and sliced and then reassembled back together to produce this 11" tall dizzy bowl. This project took more than 3 weeks to complete. The various techniques that I was able to perfect over the past several months are fully described in this video.
