Thanks! That vase instructable looks pretty good. Too bad I didn't have any good wood.

I actually carved a bulb stand out of a piece of wood with an exacto-knife and just started the decorative carving when my sister's dog stole it off the table and ate it. Then my bulb disappeared.

Thank you for commenting on my instructable! I should try carving a stand out of wood with exacto knives. Thanks for the advice.
If you do try it be sure to get some sandpaper and a second block of wood. The exacto method can be kind of inexact. It can leave a kind of scalloped surface. But a quick go with a sanding block makes it smooth much quicker than a slow shaving
