I think this is awesome, but I just don't get all of these "how to" videos
I find where there is no one saying a damn word. Not one. Sometimes (like
this) not even any text description. Where's the "how to"? This is a "hey
watch" video.

@JustWonderingHowToDo It is a Oneway live center. The vase stays centered

Getting everything to line up properly is a challenge. That's what makes it
fun tho. The wood selections and their layout are quite important. We want
woods that will contrast with one another to form an eye catching pattern.
Thanks for watching & sharing your thoughts.

Nicely done! Would like to have seen the glue up, maybe next project. I did
notice toward finishing there was a slight imbalance/wobble to the project.
Did that cause any problems, what do you attribute the wobble to?
