After I turned a miniature vase from tagua a year ago, a viewer, Terry, gave me a bag of giant tagua nuts at last year’s Utah Woodturning Symposium. I did not know tagua nuts could be this big. I wish I knew where to buy more.
This tagua vase is about 2 inches in diameter. No finish is necessary after fine sanding and buffing. Following tagua tradition, I left a bit of natural edge.
My steady rest:
