I was commissioned to make a pair of vase pedestals for a Georgian table in walnut. They provided the blanks. 9" square and 3' long, heavy and a sod to get centred on the lathe single handed. The finished pedestal is 600mm long and 320mm wide at the widest point. Goblets are much easier LOL. It's left bare as they will need to stain / polish to match the table top.

One more to finish. Had to do a work around as the laminated blank had some splits in it hidden inside the laminations but fortunately (glue allowing) I was able to cut the splits out and glue the wood back. The join will be hidden by a bead.
