  • Ikebana

    Working on getting the kind of finishes that I want. I made this Japanese Ikebana vase out of curly Koa....it has little legs. Major sanding on this, Right now it just has two coats of Tung Oil Finish and then I will buff with two compounds and solid beeswax for a finish. The flower that looks like a large feather is 28 inches in height..... plus the hibiscus was added to see how balanced it was. This is a great fast gift for women who like flowers or have them out in the gardens.... you just stick the flowers into the metal spikes in the bottom and fill a copper cup with water that sits in the hole you made.

    The top picture is how you insert the flowers into the points and it fits in your metal cup. This is a three inch Kenzan. This is the metal cup with sharp like points for flowers. You just drill a hole for the size of the cup and insert. Your wood can be any shape....just make sure that will support the metal cup. Which you can purchase on Ebay.
