DIY Birch Vase

diy birch vase

This is a simple woodworking project that just about anyone at all handy can do. Cut a fairly straight piece of birch to your desired length/height for the vase. Then use a forstner, spade or tri-flute style bit to bore out the center of the wood, leaving at least 1.5 inches at the bottom, particularly if you’re not using a forstner bit. Great for your own home decor or as an inexpensive, beautiful custom gift.
