A scrap pallet annoyed me

so I cut some of it into little pieces.

Then, just for fun, I glued them back together and rubbed on them with a bowl gouge. This was the result.

It's 12" tall by 10" dia and holds a 2" dia by 7" glass insert for fresh flowers.

That is great looking and well worth the time and effort of "scrap wood" can be.

looks like Elm or maybe Red Oak but it is just nice.
Looks like you need to be looking for more pallet wood. Yes
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Consider this: about 4 hours of work got that pallet hauled home and cut down to the good sticks, eliminating the cracks, corroded nail holes, splits, and staples that broke off instead of pulling out. I netted about 10 board feet of damp red oak that I could buy from my local source for about $25, kiln dried. I earned $6.25/hr but still worried that I missed an expensive nail. In this case it was worth it to me because the pallet was from a local charitable organization I'm involved with and the vase will be donated back to them.

Most of that pallet will be best used to roast marshmallows with my grandkids and that will be worth it too.

Salvaging pallets is a lot of work, though. I'd rather be making shavings...…… or even sanding.

I bring pallets home from work to burn in my shop stove. Occasionally I'll find one made from hardwood that is salvageable for projects, but most of it is twisted and split. I've made a couple small projects, but nothing quite like that vase - which is beautiful!

Well done! Yes
