Dan's Grandpa Adler was a woodworker and Dan always loved growing up around the smells and sights of different types of wood and creations at his Grandpa's house.  It was actually Dan's older brother, Michael, who really got into woodworking starting back in high school.  But a few years ago, Dan got a wood lathe and began creating various bowls and vases.  He created a unique method of gluing different types of wood together vertically versus horizontally to create beautiful, naturally colored designs.  It's a difficult process to glue the various woods in perfect symmetry and then get the wood on the lathe at perfect center in order for the patterns to come out evenly.  Here are some of the creations he's already made and he is open to custom making them as well.  You can email him to ask about custom creations.

This vase has Pine as the center surrounded by Poplar, stained with Red Mahogany and finished with gloss polyurethane. This vase is discounted because there is a slight un-evenness in the patterns of the poplar wood on the pine (see photos). SOLD

This vase uses an exotic Red Heart wood in the center surrounded by Hickory and then naturally finished with Tung Oil. Unfortunately, this vase is flawed because it somehow didn't get correctly centered in the gluing or lathing process causing the patterns of the red heart to be unequal in size and spacing on the out side and the tulip pattern on the inside to be slightly off center. It's still lovely but discounted due to the flaws. SOLD
