“Bamboo Vessel”

Posted on by Norine

Bamboo vessel
2.5″ x 1.75″ bamboo, cherry base, sycamore lid

I have quite a nice selection of wood varieties in my workshop, assorted scraps that fellow woodworkers have saved for me. And now I have the perfect idea for combining them – these small containers!

I cut this piece of bamboo on an angle, and figured out a pleasing thickness for the wood caps. I sanded through the outer skin where bamboo meets sycamore lid and cherry base, leaving the node area in its natural state. The lid is shaped to fit inside the bamboo about 1/4″ and is an interesting piece of wood in itself. I sand and sand until the edges feel like a natural extension of the bamboo.

This one is not for sale, but I’m working on others…
