As my regular viewers can attest, I’ve made several attempts to turn the root of rose bushes with varying degrees of success and varying degrees of difficulty. In this video, I’ve pressed forward with a new, freshly dug rose root section.

Well, I still had some difficulty with this instance. The root did not yield the diameter of wood that I anticipated once I turned it down to remove most of the bark and bark inclusions. I also had unfortunate results with mounting green wood to a waste block even with using a tenon.

That aside, this is my best vase yet from the root of a rose. Persistence is paying off.

Good turning.
