A simple accent to give armchair nature lovers a breath of fresh air.

This project combines some unlikely ingredients –a glass test tube and some scrap lumber–to create a celebration of natural beauty that makes a great tabletop display. Inspiration came from the Asian art of flower arrangement, a “less is more” philosophy that favors individual sprigs and blooms over big bouquets. Incorporating curves, arcs and rounded edges into the design acknowledges the curved forms common in Asian architectural styles. I’ve made quite a few of these vases in a range of sizes,using a variety of different woods. The sizing and construction details I'll share here will enable you to create your own versions of this small but distinctive project.
