I dug up an old rose bush from my yard. (Please do not report me to the Rose Club). The root is large enough for at least a couple of turnings. But exactly what should I turn with this unusual wood. I consulted with another woodturner and finally decided on a first project.
This vase is about 3″ tall and 3″ in diameter. It is finished with walnut oil. I tried to preserve some of the bottom roots and voids between roots. I carved out the bark inclusions and did a lot of hand sanding.
It is a conversation piece.
