Make a Wooden Vase with a Bandsaw

This wooden vase is fun to build if you have a bandsaw.  The process is very similar to making a bandsaw box.  It's intended for artificial flower arrangements, but you could add a glass insert to hold water for real flowers if you are so inclined.



If you make your cuts carefully, you could end up with two vases from one block of wood like I did.  I made these using a Western Red Cedar 2x4 from Home Depot and some Southern Yellow Pine pallet wood.  If you like making bandsaw boxes, then you will love making a bandsaw vase too!


Watch my video of this project and if you would like to make one, download my free Bandsaw Vase Plan (PDF).  Don't forget to send me a picture...I'd love to see it!

  1. These turned out beautiful. I plan on making my wife and parents a set of these after I recover from my shoulder surgery. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks Larry! Hope you have a speedy recovery! These are easy to make and the glue drying time breaks up the project nicely across 2-3 days. Have fun!

  2. very nice work. I typically use scroll saw but found band saw to be much quicker. What size saw do you use and blade size. My band saw is only 9 inch so I will reduce pattern.
