Wormy Wood Tube Vase
The true look of natural wood
By repurposing wood that had been eaten by Japan's ambrosia beetle, the Oyama Lumber Company has managed to turn unwanted wood into a series of vases that beautifully accentuate the wormy holes. Although once considered unusable, the wood is in fact the result of an entirely normal cycle of nature that renders each piece of wood unique.
Don’t let its size fool you. The tube vase was hand-turned from a single block of wood using a lathe and carries substantial weight so as to not get knocked over. It comes with a glass beaker that fits snugly inside to hold water. Also available in Bobbin style.

As each vase is made from a unique block of wormy wood, the surface appearance will differ slightly.
