The pictures below are the eight vases in the second edition with a brief description. The second edition of this book is about choices. There are multiple different decorating choices included in the book. Several of you have emailed me saying that the vases are selling well in your shows. I believe the reason is that they are unique. I'm hoping these extra decorating choices will allow you to bring even more people into your booth.

For those of you making these as gifts you now have more choices to make the perfect gift for any personality.

For those of you who have asked about using these vases for live flowers here are my thoughts. First of all these are designed as decorative vases or for dried flowers. I have been doing some experiments with water in the vases. Obviously the vases with open fretwork are out. I used a waterproof glue and sealed the inside of the vases with spray lacquer. They held water just fine but I'm not making any promises. Three of these vases were designed without fretwork so you can do your own experiments with water proofing the vases.  
This is a little over nine inches tall. I designed this vase with plenty of room for decoration. In the example I show the vase decorated with wood burning. (I include four wood burning patterns). For those of you with an artistic side this vase has room for a nice painted scene. I could also be used for a commemorative vase by adding names and dates such as an Anniversary.
This vase is nine inches tall. In the example I show it decorated with a polymer clay inlay. Polymer clay is an inexpensive oven hardened clay that works pretty well for inlay. You cut the fretwork and full it with the clay. It's is then baked at low temperature to harden the clay. You can also use other inlay material like Inlace or simply cut the fretwork.
This is another vase that stands a little over nine inches tall.  This one is just a simple fretwork pattern but keep in mind that you can decorate any of these vase the way you like.
Standing eight inches tall this vase demonstrates a carved wooden applique technique. The leaf pattern is included. You simply cut the leaf on the scroll saw then use a dremel tool or hand carving tools to make the applique look hand carved. It's pretty easy and give a nice hand made look to the vase.
This vase is under seven inches tall. I designed this vase to have a little more complicated fretwork. This one will challenge your cutting skill a bit but the end result looks impressive.
Another vase that's just under seven inches tall. This vase has easy fret work and is designed to be very easy to sand. By far the most difficult task in building these vases is the sanding. This vase has very gradual contours which make sanding a lot easier. 

This vase is about the bling. It is eight inches tall and has been painted with gold metallic paint. When I was researching different methods to decorate the vases for this book I decided to try painting one. I actually thought it would be a terrible idea. I am a wood guy. Painting wood is evil. Guess what I like the way it turned out enough to include it in the book. There are several different metallic and textured paints and they give the project a totally unique look. The key is to sand to a very high grit before applying the paint in thin layers.
This vase is the grand daddy of the book. It stands an impressive 14.25 inches. This vase was designed to be about the size. It's the "draw the customers into the tent vase". I made the dragon motif for the example because I want this one on my display shelf. I also include a floral pattern for this vase to make it easier to sell.
