In this instructable, I'll show you how I built a twisted vase (or pedestal) from multiplex (plywood) boards.

Step 1: What you need

Multiplex boards (I had some scrap boards, all of the same thickness)
Saw (I suggest a circular table saw, for precise repeatable cuts)
cardboard for template.
some scrap wood.
baking paper (or anything else to separate wood while gluing).
belt sander (Use a fresh sanding belt!)
Sandpaper or sanding machine to sand concave forms

oh...i shall one day try both your vases...no lather and tools but i think an angle grinder with a sanding pad should do it!
your stuff are beautiful!!!!

An angle grinder might work even better than a belt sander, I just didn't have one.
They are really fun to make.

how do you sand inside surface
derwassi (author)  useraaaaa2 years ago
I didn't;-) it was originally planned as pedestal. Therefore it would have been upside down, but you barely see inside when using it as a vase, too.
Wow! Very nice. Great use for scrap, I'll have to apply this method sometime.

That looks really nice.

Did you lacquer / oil the inside as well?

Thanks:-)
I didn't lacquer/oil it on the inside. It is only used for dry or artificial flowers.
There're also still steps on the inside as it is not sanded there. So it would be quite a pain to paint it on the inside...
Or you could just pour in the lacquer/oil and turn it around slowly until everything is covered.
