Shiplap Redwood Lipped Vase

I made this vase by gluing together 7 pieces of redwood. It's redwood that previously lined the walls of a beach house in Pinellas County Florida. The side of the boards that faced out were painted a color I can only describe as 'aged'. My guess is it was originally a pale shade of cream. Regardless, it was a joy to push the boards through the planer and see that aged pain disappear.
Even after passing repeatedly through the planer the boards still retained a few great features that add character to the vase. There are some nail holes and a few dents. In addition since the vase is made of many boards instead of one block, it has a unique layered look which shows off the variety of grain patterns and color variations.
The vase does not hold water but is perfect for twigs, silk flowers, feathers and other creative items. The hole on this one is very narrow so it will only accommodate a few of these items. However, none of those are particularly necessary as the vase has enough personality to hold its own in any setting.
